The Pro-Life Ministry of the Archdiocese of Hartford ended its local 40 Days for Life campaign with a “Red Rose Closing Ceremony” on Nov. 6 on the corner of Jefferson and Main Streets in Hartford, across the street from the Hartford GYN Center, where abortions are performed. Approximately 40 people who participated in the ceremony held red roses as a symbol of life. Most were volunteers who stood vigil during the campaign, praying for an end to abortion. Ninety parishes from across the Archdiocese participated in the campaign. Mary Lou Peters, assistant program coordinator of the Pro-Life Ministry, said that eight babies were saved locally since the campaign began on Sept. 28. Father Robert Rousseau, director of the Pro-Life Ministry; and Dr. Theresa Krankowski, director of St. Gerard’s Center for Life in Hartford, also spoke.
