Spiritual work of mercy:

Join us in praying a special prayer to end the use of the death penalty here.

Corporal works of mercy:

  • 'Packages of Mercy' aid the re-entry program by providing care packages to those who have just been released from prison and have no family. The care packages should include things like men's toiletries, razors, towels, new undergarments, and other basic items, plus a note of encouragement. Email the Respect Life Office for more information at
  • Messages of Mercy-Become a pen pal with a prisoner. Email to sign up.
  • Monthly Respect Life Gathering: This month's Respect Life Gathering with a focus on the death penalty will be held on Thursday, August 17, 2017, at 7:00 PM at the Seelos Center of St. Alphonsus Catholic Church, 919 Josephine St. in New Orleans.
