This year’s Gospel of Life Appeal message with Bishop Olmsted features an appeal by our Bishop to do all we can to protect and serve the lives of our most vulnerable, particularly our unborn brothers and sisters. It contains a short, true story from a mother who chose adoption for her child after becoming pregnant in rape then seeing a VirtueMedia television ad. It is very age appropriate for youth and non-graphic as well as inspiring.
Funds collected from the Gospel of Life Appeal are distributed this way.
• 1/3 stays at the parish for Respect Life outreach according to pastor’s priorities
• 1/3 supports the ongoing VirtueMedia Gospel of Life ad campaign
• 1/3 provides Respect Life education throughout the Diocese of Phoenix through the Marriage and Respect Life office
