Physician Assisted Suicide Information

The Connecticut Catholic Public Affairs Conference, Archdiocese of Hartford Pro-Life Ministry, Diocese of Bridgeport Office for Pastoral Services - Respect Life Office, and the Family Institute of Connecticut sponsored four information sessions on Physician Assisted Suicide for Connecticut Catholics and friends during November 2014.  Please click HERE to view streaming videos of the four presentations.


Archdiocese addresses the Federal edict on Health Care Insurance

The Archdiocese of Hartford and dioceses across the nation, as well as non-Catholic religious and non-religious groups are vigorously opposing the new federal health care insurance legislation, which will require that all employers (with few exceptions) pay for health coverage that covers sterilization, contraception, and medication that induces abortion.

Archbishop Blair, as well as all U.S. Catholic bishops, asks you to oppose the new United States Health and Human Services mandate on health insurance. This legislation violates the basic principle in our country of freedom of religion. Your resistance to this edict will be appreciated. Please contact your respective U.S. legislator and ask them to intervene on behalf of religious freedom.  Click here to find the contact information for your U.S. legislators.
