October is Respect Life Month, instituted in 1972 by the USCCB in anticipation of Roe vs. Wade, the infamous legalization of abortion. Since then, 62.5 million children have been lost as well as countless parents who suffer anxiety, depression and even suicide following the deaths of their unborn babies. The Respect Life Miistry of ST Paul of the Cross Parish has many events planned this month.
