Background: What is the Respect Life Program?

Frequently Asked Questions

Sponsored by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, the Respect Life Program started in 1972 and begins anew each year.

The first Sunday in October (Respect Life Month) is observed as Respect Life Sunday and kicks off the new program, which continues through the following September.

New materials are produced each year to help Catholics understand, value, and become engaged with supporting the dignity of the human person, especially the gift of every person's life.

Although developed especially for use in parishes, schools, and faith-based ministries, many of the materials are also suitable for individual use.
