Catholic Respect Life implements the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops' Pastoral Plan for Pro-Life Activities by facilitating the renewal of the Catholic community to a “Culture of Life.” 

  • Every Thursday morning following the 8:30am Mass for Rosary for Life, Eucharistic chapel.
  • 2nd Tuesday each month for our pro-life meeting 7:00pm 
    • Rosary for Life at 6:45pm

The mission of The Respect Life Ministry of Good Shepherd Catholic Community is to support the Diocese of Fort Worth in encouraging all people to respect life from conception to natural death.

40 Days for Life (September 25 through November 3) is a focused pro-life campaign with a vision to access God’s power through prayer, fasting, and peaceful vigil to end abortion in America. Have you been to pray at a 40 Days for Life vigil yet? You may ask, “What do I do?” or “What sign should I bring?” The answer is simple; the only sign you really need to bring is yourself, for you represent God’s love. You can go for any amount of time on a single date; there is no need to register for weekly slots unless you feel called to. Learn more:

Catholics Care. Catholics Vote.

"We need to participate for the common good. Sometimes we hear: a good Catholic is not interested in politics. This is not true: good Catholics immerse themselves in politics by offering the best of themselves so that the leader can govern."   - Pope Francis, 9/16/13
