This ministry was formed at St. Anthony Church in order to foster a culture of life and engage parishioners in life-affirming activities. This ministry helps to educate parishioners on the issues of abortion and the sanctity of life and organizes political efforts to support life.
As Catholics, we believe that human life is a precious gift from God and that we must protect and nurture human life at every stage of its existence. If you would like to join our committee, please contact Trudy at: 203-305-4972 or [email protected]
2024 Connecticut March for Life:
Please join us for the 3rd annual March for Life on Wednesday, March 20th, 2024 at the State Capitol in Hartford. Once again, St. Anthony Church and St. Bridget Church in Cheshire are sponsoring a 55 passenger coach bus to bring our parishioners to this very special event. We are so very grateful to our Knights of Columbus of New Haven who are subsidizing the cost of this transportation - The Knights are very supportive of our Pro-Life Ministry! There is no cost to our parishioners for transportation to this event. We will be departing from St. Anthony’s parking lot at 10:15 AM and returning by approximately 3:30 PM. The Rally at the Capitol with speakers will begin at noon and the March around Bushnell Park is scheduled for 1 PM. You may register for this event on the Connecticut March for Life website. If you plan to attend, please email Trudy Higgins at [email protected] to reserve your seat on the bus. If you prefer to call her, her phone number is 203-305-4972. We have seating for 27 parishioners since we are sharing the bus with St. Bridget’s so please contact Trudy as soon as possible. Reservations will be first come, first served. We hope that you will join us as we stand up for the protection of all human life!
