Respect for Life Breakfast The 14th annual Respect Life Breakfast will be held on Sat. January 21, 2012 at Holy Rosary Catholic Church, 4851 Park Avenue, Memphis.

The breakfast will begin in the Family Room immediately following the celebration of Mass at 8:15 AM. Guest speakers will be Father Ed Fisher, Pastor, Blessed Sacrament Church and Vicki Hardesty, Director, Birthright of Memphis. Members of the Shelby County Chapter of Tennessee Right to Life will also be on hand to talk about the Sanctity of Life Rally on Sun. January 22. The breakfast is open to the public and is complimentary but free will donations are accepted. Child care is available but must be arranged prior to the meeting.
