40 Days for Life Campaign

An Opportunity for Life

September 25th to November 3rd, 2019

Following is an overview of how the campaign will be organized in the Archdiocese of Hartford. The Pro-Life Ministry of the Archdiocese of Hartford is organizing the campaign; Anne Boers is Coordinator of the campaign. Further information and organizational details will be distributed to parish leaders of the campaign.

 Archbishop Leonard P. Blair has approved the 40 Days for Life campaign in the Archdiocese of Hartford.

  • The campaign consists of:
    24 hours of Eucharistic Adoration in parishes AND
    12 hours of prayerful vigil (6:00 a.m. –  6:00 p.m.) at the Hartford GYN Center (abortion clinic).
    Alternative hours are permissible to meet parish needs.
    It is important for each parish to participate in Adoration and Vigil.
  • All vigils are prayerful, peaceful and respectful. Click here for Participant Statement of Peace.
  • This campaign is copyrighted; therefore rules and regulations concerning respectful behavior must be followed.
  • It will not be the pastors’ responsibility to organize the campaign.
  • Each group will register with the Archdiocesan Pro-Life Ministry for a particular date (or dates) on which to hold adoration and vigil.
  • Each group will have a leader to coordinate the schedule of those participating in adoration and clinic vigil.
  • If security is a concern, suggestions to avoid risk will be offered.
  • Signs and gear may be purchased at

The 40 Days for Life campaign is now international and continues to grow. Please join us and others in this historic campaign to end abortion.
