Respect Life Mass set for this Sunday

STAMFORD—The diocesan Respect Life Mass is set for this Sunday, October 6 at noon at the Basilica of St. John the Evangelist in Stamford.

The Mass will be celebrated by Father Albert Audette and all are welcome to attend and offer prayers for the respect of all human life, from birth to natural death.

Following the Mass, there will be a Life Chain event outside the Basilica, where participants will form a “life chain,” in prayerful support of those who have no voice.

The Life Chain is a pro-life social movement organization, one of the largest in the United States. It was started in 1987 in Yuba City and Marysville by a small California-based pro-life ministry called Please Let Me Live.

Every first Sunday of October, Life Chain invites various churches and congregations across the United States to stand on designated sidewalks to pray and rally for one hour.
