New Orleans, La., Oct 15, 2012 / 23:36 pm
"Thou shalt not kill" is the message on yard signs being distributed to parishes in the Archdiocese of New Orleans this week.
"I want area Catholics and non-Catholics who wish to join us to be able to proudly display the signs and in doing so, tell their neighbors, we are a people of peace, we do not accept or want violence in our neighborhoods," Archbishop Gregory M. Aymond said in an Oct. 15th press release.
They are there "to serve as a reminder to the community that we must respect life and one another."
Parishioners will be able to pick up the yard signs at their parishes to display in their yards. Five thousand signs have been made and depending on demand, more may be distributed at a later date.
