40 Days for Life - 2015 Campaign
The Archdiocese of Hartford is about to embark on its eighth 40 Days for Life campaign from Wednesday, September 23 through Sunday, November 1, 2015. The prayer vigil will be held at the same location as in past campaigns: on the traffic island across from the Hartford GYN Center at One Main Street, Hartford.
The 40 Days for Life campaign has three major components: prayer and fasting, vigil at abortion clinics, and community education. If you click onto the national web site www.40daysforlife.com, you will find extensive information about the campaign.
Participation in the Hartford 40 Days for Life includes 24 hours of Eucharistic Adoration in churches, and 12 hours of prayerful vigil at the abortion clinic in Hartford, the Hartford GYN Center at 1 Main Street. Parishes may hold Eucharistic Adoration and vigil at the abortion clinic on the same day, or may choose separate dates for each. The prayer vigil at the clinic is essential to the campaign. MORE>

Death of Assisted Suicide
The bill in the Connecticut Legislature Judiciary Committee (HB 7015) which would have legalized Assisted Suicide, failed to get a vote and thus died. We are extremely grateful to all those who worked diligently, wrote letters, sent emails and testified to defeat this dangerous bill.
This marks the third year that Assisted Suicide has not been voted out of committee but it does mean that proponents will not continue to press for this legislation in future legislative sessions.
“Human life must be protected from conception to natural death.” Please continue to educate and pray for human life.
