The Respect Life Ministry of the Diocese of Bridgeport strives to build a culture of life by upholding and promoting the dignity of human life from the moment of conception to natural death.

We work to implement the guidelines of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Pastoral Plan for Pro-Life Activities, in which we are called upon as church with our resources, our people, our services and institutions to pursue the cause of life with renewed energy and commitment.
