The Bishop's 10th Annual Catholic Respect Life Gala

Thank you to everyone who supported and participated in the 2014 Catholic Respect Life Gala.

The Gala was successful thanks to the combined efforts of parishes, schools, individual parishioners, Respect Life groups, Youth for Life, Knights of Columbus, the Catholic Center, and many others. Approximately750 people attended. The proceeds of the night exceeded those of last year's. Revenue from the gala, will be used to help fund the various ministries of the Office of Respect Life.

United as a community of faith, Catholics of the Diocese of Fort Worth gave testimony of our commitment to protect and defend the sanctity and dignity of life with joy and generosity.  And led by our Bishop, The Most Rev. Michael F. Olson, Respect Life Gala participants witnessed a profound and inspiring message.
