Respect Life Month

 

IMG_20181019_131654792During Respect Life month, we pray that we may show by our words and actions that every human life is cherished and chosen – even those on death row.  As Pope Francis has recently written “the dignity of the person is not lost even after the commission of very serious crimes.”

To help keep the death penalty part of the conversation during Respect Life month, Pax Christi Alabama has made available these USCCB pamphlets on the Church’s teaching on death penalty at many of the Birmingham-area parishes.  

If you would like to know more about anti-death penalty advocacy in Alabama, please visit Project Hope to Abolish the Death Penalty in Alabama whose mission is to educate the public and to bring about the abolition of the death penalty in Alabama.
