The Annual Archdiocesan Respect Life Mass will be celebrated by Archbishop Leonard P. Blair on Sunday, October 8, 2017.

A highlight of the Mass is the presentation by Archbishop Blair of the Saint Gianna Beretta Molla Medal which is given to persons who have demonstrated a sustained and dedicated commitment to the protection of all human life. This year’s awardees are:

Carey Dupont, Principal, St. Paul Catholic High School, Bristol, an educational leader who is dedicated to youth and sponsors students for the March for Life in D.C.

Mike Ferrara, a devoted volunteer at St. Gianna's Pregnancy Care Center in New Haven.

The Reverend Robert Landback, priest of the Archdiocese and pastor, who for years has worked with the Rachel’s Vineyard Retreat Ministry, participated in the March for Life in D.C., and as Chaplain has coordinated the Courage Ministry for the Archdiocese.

Mary Lou Peters, a devoted worker in the Pro-Life Ministry for the Archdiocese of Hartford for the past 17 years who founded the 40 Days for Life campaign in the Archdiocese. She also serves as a parish pro-life representative at St. Joseph Parish, Poquonock.

Following the presentation of the medals, Archbishop Blair will lead those present in the Cathedral in a pledge to support all human life. When Mass has ended, anyone representing a parish or regional pro-life committee, may go to the front of the Cathedral and receive a blessed candle from the Pro-Life Ministry.
