Sept. 27 Respect Life Gala will fund compassionate responses to pro-abortion culture

The Catechism of the Catholic Church teaches that “human life must be respected and protected absolutely from the moment of conception” (2270). The Respect Life Office of the Diocese of Fort Worth strives to protect human lives through its services, which include Youth for Life, Rachel Ministries, and Gabriel Project. These three major diocesan pro-life programs are made possible through the office’s biggest fundraiser of the year: The Bishop’s 10th Annual Respect Life Gala. This year’s gala, set for Sept. 27, will feature Bishop Michael Olson as its primary speaker. All proceeds will go to the Respect Life Office so the diocese can carry out its pro-life mission.
