"Open your hearts to life!"
USCCB Respect Life Theme
for 2013-2014



  • The Pro-Life Ministry serves the Archdiocese of Hartford by promoting a culture of life. Human life is precious and entitled to protection from conception through natural death. This ministry offers programs of education that promote the preciousness of human life and the hurtful impact of abortion, euthanasia, human cloning, the death penalty, assisted suicide, and embryonic stem cell research.

    The Pro-Life Ministry fosters pastoral programs for women and men, e.g., Project Rachel and pregnancy crisis centers; advocates for public policies that support human life, and provides opportunities for liturgy and prayer with the theme of the inherent dignity of the human person.

    Pro-Life Ministry sends e-mail alerts whenever breaking news occurs in the General Assembly or in the U.S. Congress requesting voters to express their opinion by contacting their state or federal legislators.
