Respect Life Fund
Please help us to extend works of mercy throughout the Archdiocese of Cincinnati by promoting participation in the Archdiocesan Respect Life collection on October 2 & 3, 2021. All parishes are encouraged to participate in both the celebration of Respect Life Sunday and the Respect Life Collection that provides funds for so many wonderful organizations throughout our communities. Respect Life Packets are mailed out each August from the USCCB and are distributed to all the Parish Respect Life Coordinators and pastors. These packets are filled with advertising resources, bulletin inserts, prayer intercessions, homily suggestions, and ideas for how to spread the Gospel of Life throughout the entire year. A sample of the downloadable resources are available below. You can also access digital copies of ALL of the resources on the USCCB Website.
Thank you for your interest in supporting a Respect Life Culture here within the Archdiocese of Cincinnati. By donating to the Respect Life Fund, you are helping local organizations within the community. The more contributions that are made, the more funding we can distribute. A small portion of the funds are used to sustain Respect Life programming for Archdiocese such as Project Rachel, and the remainder are distributed through grants to organizations across the Archdiocese that promote life in a variety of different ways.
