September 23rd through November 1st
You are invited to join other Christians from throughout the Diocese of Bridgeport to take part in the International 40 Days for Life effort from September 23 through November 1. In addition to 40 days of peaceful prayer and fasting for an end to abortion, please consider volunteering to pray outside of the Planned Parenthood facility at 44 Main Street, Danbury, for one or more hours during the 40 days. Your presence will help spread the word to others about this important life-saving effort. St. Mary Parish will stand vigil on Saturday, October 17th from 7:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. Please join your fellow parishioners as they show their respect for the unborn. To receive more information, or to volunteer to help, please contact Mary Reinertsen at 203-438-8212 or email@example.com
We are looking for talented, passionate members for our Respect Life committee: photographers, writers, organizers, social media and graphic designers. If you would like to help in any of these areas, please fill in your information below so we can contact you. Thank you for helping to be the voice of the voiceless!

St. Mary Respect Life has been active in St Mary Parish for over 30 years. During this time we have posted billboards, sponsored buses to the Washington, D.C. March for Life, raised money for Pro-Life charities, brought in Pro-Life speakers, and passed out Pro-Life material in order to keep Life issues out in the public eye.
Mission: To act as a lay apostolate in proclaiming the Gospel of Life and in working toward implementation of the USCCB "Pastoral Plan for Pro-Life Activities".
Who We Are:
We are a lay apostolate group dedicated to the idea that all human life is created in God’s image. We strongly believe that life begins at conception and continues until natural death.
Through our many projects we try to raise awareness of the sanctity of human life and of loving alternatives to abortion. Our goal is to change hearts and minds, and ultimately see the 14,000 annual abortions in the State of Connecticut eliminated.
What We Do:
Our committee has several teams which support projects and events throughout the year. They include a Billboard and Media campaign, support for Project Rachel, Birthright of Greater Danbury, March for Life, speakers/presentations, memorials to the unborn, and Life Chain.
The Committee also works to interface, regarding areas of respect for life, with other organizations and ministries, including the Knights of Columbus and Life Teen, and other Respect Life organizations throughout Fairfield County.
We meet in the school library at 7:00PM on the first Thursday of every month. All are welcome to join us.
BILLBOARDS: This billboard, sponsored by St. Mary Respect Life, is currently posted on Elm St., just off Main St., in Danbury. It has been posted to coincide with the current 40 Days for Life campaign in Danbury. St. Mary Respect Life will be posting additional billboards in Danbury and Bridgeport throughout the remainder of this year. Thanks to all who have contributed to enable a change of hearts and minds through these messages for life.
