40 Days for Life Campaign Revamping
40 Days for Life - September 28-November 6, 2016
40 Days for Life is the most successful international pro-life campaign and has inspiring statistics to support its life-affirming efforts, including 68 babies saved during our Hartford campaigns. The Archdiocese of Hartford plans to continue its participation but not in the Fall of 2016. A new approach with new ideas and new leaders will be introduced in 2017. Archbishop Leonard P. Blair has endorsed this decision.
The Hartford GYN Center is still very much involved in the abortion business and although we are not officially participating in the campaign, praying at the abortion clinic is very much encouraged; however, NO 40 DAYS FOR LIFE SIGNS should be used as those signs are reserved for registered campaigns. Please adhere to this restriction. Simple signs with "Pray to End Abortion" are acceptable, but none referring to 40 Days for Life.
Adoration in parishes is also very important during the campaign. As much prayer as possible is needed for the campaign and for all involved. Please make every effort to hold Adoration as often as possible during the campaign.
God bless you for your continued pro-life prayers and labors.
Mary Lou Peters
Archdiocese of Hartford
