  3. The Gospel of Life Appeal (formerly Respect Life Sunday) will take place in parishes throughout the Diocese of Phoenix the weekend of Oct. 1-2, 2011.

    1. The name change emphasizes our responsibility at the domestic Church, parish and diocesan levels to evangelize with the Good News of the precious dignity of human beings at all stages of life and development. This is in keeping with the vision of John Paul II's 1995 encyclical Evangelium Vitae as well as the corresponding USCCB 1996 document Living the Gospel of Life.

    2. To better encourage and assist parish efforts to be actively involved in promoting the Gospel of Life, the resulting funds of the collection will be distributed as follows beginning this October.

    a. 33% of the funds collected at the parish remain with the parish to fund its own Respect Life educational efforts at the discretion of the pastor.

    b. 34% of the funds continue to fund our cooperation with Virtue Media in the ongoing pro-life ads we are running in the state.

    c. 33% of the funds are retained by the Office of Marriage and Respect Life Parish Leadership Support to fund our Diocesan-level pro-life evangelistic and educational efforts.

    d. In sum, 33% of the funds generated remain with the parish, while 67% are sent to the Office of Marriage and Respect Life for the purposes mentioned in b and c.

    We are a Gospel of Life diocese, one and all. May the Holy Spirit breathe life into all our good efforts to end the culture of death and grow a culture of life!
