October is Respect Life Month in the United States, and this package of resources from our partner Catholic News Service helps Catholics and all people understand how they can work together to build a culture of life.
Small, local efforts to build a culture that respects life
From helping at pregnancy resource centers or in nursing homes and hospice centers and at every point in between, we help one another to bear the burdens of life and to welcome every human life, writes Elizabeth Kirk.
How parishes can support families with pregnancy and infant loss
Parish communities can support families before, during and after a family’s crisis pregnancy and the death of an infant, writes a mother experienced with both. Parishes can memorialize, offer sacraments and accompany families in their most difficult hour.

Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
