KEY BISCAYNE | Throughout October, the St. Agnes Academy and parish community celebrated Respect Life Month, placing a special focus on human dignity in various ways. The goal was to grow in the knowledge that every human being is valuable and deserving of respect and care, including unborn children, the elderly, the sick or disabled, the depressed and the poor. 

School activities for the month included reciting a special Respect Life prayer each day, holding a diaper drive for needy families, a White Dress Down Day fundraiser to benefit a pregnancy center, and a special screening of the movie “Unplanned” for parents.

St. Agnes Academy students bring in donations for the diaper drive, one of the events held at the school to mark Respect Life Month this October.
