Protect Every Life: Journey with us January 12-22, 2022

Respect Life Month

January 22nd, 2022 marks the 49th anniversary of the lamentable 1973 U.S. Supreme Court Decision, Roe v. Wade. Recognizing the malignant havoc of legalized abortion still gripping our nation, Bishop Jaime Soto designates Friday, January 21st as a Diocesan Day of Reparation.

The Catholic Faithful and all people of goodwill are encouraged to observe this Day of Reparation with prayers for the legal protection of human life, works of mercy and penance in reparation for the persistent violations of human dignity inflicted by the practice of abortion. In the spirit of Evangelium Vitae, whose 25th anniversary is being commemorated by the national Catholic initiative Walking with Moms In Need, activities this January will focus on enlivening the culture of life for mothers, fathers, and their families.

"Protect Every Life" Masks

The Office of Respect Life still has "Protect Every Life" Masks that can be ordered. We ask people to take selfies or videos during any of the Pro-life activities and post on social media using #SCDProLife #ProtectEveryLife.
