Catholic Daughters are called to say YES and support one another with emotional and spiritual kinship through shared values, beliefs, traditions, common experiences, activities and unconditional love. Families praying together, working together and playing together will fully encompass the Circle of Love Program. In addition, Circle of Love Family supports initiatives pertaining to the dignity of life -- from conception to natural death.
If anyone does not provide for his relatives, and especially for his own family, he has disowned the faith and is worse than an unbeliever. 1 Timothy 5:8
In October, the Catholic Church in the United States celebrates Respect Life Month, and the first Sunday of October is designated as Respect Life Sunday. To support these annual observances, the USCCB Secretariat of Pro-Life Activities provides materials to help Catholics understand and value the gift of human life and help build a culture that cherishes and protects it.
What a blessing to kick off October - Respect Life Month - by announcing Court St. Jane Frances de Chantal #2699 and it's new partnership with Loving Choice Pregnancy Help Center in Spring, Texas.
Guided by faith, love, and the Holy Spirit, Loving Choice's mission is to provide emotional, educational, material, and spiritual support to expectant mothers and fathers who are faced with an unplanned pregnancy.

Do not be afraid, for I am with you; do not be alarmed, for I am your God. I give you strength, truly I help you, truly I hold you firm with my saving right hand. Isaiah 41:10
One of our favorite homilies! All of our homilies at St. Anthony of Padua are amazing, but this particular one by Deacon Mike Krall about Pro-Life was indescribable. Watch it on St. Anthony's Facebook page. You'll want to watch this over and over again. Share this beautiful homily with everyone you know! Click here.
We proclaim that human life is a precious gift from God; that each person who receives this gift has responsibilities toward God, self and others; and that society, through its laws and social institutions, must protect and nurture human life at every stage of its existence.
