Thank you to everyone who joined us for the Life Chain Rosary Event on Sunday, October 2nd and peacefully showed that they too believe every human life is sacred. Our efforts here today will help make a difference in the world by furthering the culture of life.


The Family Life Office of the Diocese of Laredo is happy to once again organize the annual Life Chain. It will be held on Respect Life Sunday, October 2, 2022, from 2pm-3pm.

Individuals participating will spend the hour praying for all those who have been hurt by abortion, all of the lives lost to abortion and for an end to this horrific act. Participants will peacefully hold up signs as they form a "chain" along the sidewalks that run down McPherson Road beginning at where it intersects with Hillside Road.


KHOY's annual radiothon will take place from Monday, October 17th - Friday, October 21st with a special focus on the Holy Family. Laredo's only Catholic radio station invites the community to continue lending their support. During the week of the radiothon, call in or drop by to share why you enjoy listening to KHOY 88.1 FM! 

Donations may be made in person, over the phone, or online.
