40 Days for Life - September 22 through October 31, 2021

The Respect Life Ministry of the Archdiocese of Hartford is sponsoring a 40 Days for Life Prayer Vigil at a new location.

 The site this year is on the sidewalk outside of:

Planned Parenthood

 1030 New Britain Avenue

West Hartford, Connecticut


This year’s fall campaign runs from September 22 through October 31, 2021. 

Vigil hours are 6:00 a.m. through 6:00 p.m.


40 Days for Life is an ecumenical, internationally-coordinated 40-day peaceful Pro-Life campaign to end abortion.  The visible, public centerpiece of 40 Days for Life is a focused, 40-day prayer vigil outside a single Planned Parenthood center or other abortion facility.

Those who are called to stand witness during this 40 day vigil send a powerful message to the community about the tragic reality of abortion.

Our own St. John Respect Life Ministry plans to participate through fasting and prayer, as well as choosing a date for the peaceful vigil in Hartford.  If you have questions about participating in any way, contact our parish’s Respect Life Representative Ginny Wawrzyniak at 860-987-8152.
