March for Life Mass celebrated by Archbishop Henry Mansell and concelebrated by Msgr John McCarthy at St Joseph Cathedral in Hartford. More than 300 prolife advocates attended the Mass and stayed to pray the Rosary for the unborn. Later in the morning, 200 plus prolife supporters gathered at the state Capitol building to pray the Rosary, the Divine Mercy Chaplet and to listen to several speakers talk about the need for continued advocacy, legislative trends, changing popular opinion favoring life, the impact of abortion, and prolife success stories. Representatives from the Helpers of God’s Precious Infants, Connecticut Coalition for Life, Family Institute of Connecticut, Connecticut Right to Life and St. Gerard’s Center for Life spoke at the rally affirming the dignity of life and offering encouragement to those who continue to work towards protecting the sanctity of life for all.
