Every year, the Respect Life Denver supplies parishes, which have incorporated a Celebrate Life program, with USCCB Parish Kits. New materials are produced each year to help Catholics understand, value and become engaged with supporting the dignity of every person. Each kit contains a catalog, resource guide, brochures and flyers that promote the annual theme. Many items are also in Spanish.
The program begins anew each October, which is Respect Life month.
We also encourage parishes to promote Respect Life activities throughout the year. For example, by following the monthly thematic guidelines provided.
CELEBRATE LIFE in 2022
The 2022 Celebrate Life Rally and March is planned for Saturday, Jan. 15, 2022, at the state Capitol in Denver. The theme is: Honoring Courageous Mothers. See details at this link.
CELEBRATE LIFE in 2021
In January 2021, given COVID-19 restrictions, Respect Life Denver encouraged the celebration of a Respect Life Mass at parishes throughout Northern Colorado. See the three dozen parishes that participated at this link.
CELEBRATE LIFE in 2020
Each year, the Respect Life office promotes the Celebrate Life march and rally in Downtown Denver. It was last held in January 2020, with videos and other content at this link.
Many parishes participate and bring positive messages and images on vinyl banners. Pre-designed banner ideas are available at Heritage House. These banners are worth displaying on your walls of the parish or school, to remind those who see them that the Catholic Church values life at every age and every stage.
