The 24-hour vigil was part of the 40 Days for Life campaign that began Sept. 28 throughout the Archdiocese of Hartford. Mary Lou Peters, assistant program coordinator of the Pro-Life Ministry in Meriden, also coordinates the local 40 Days for Life, during which volunteers actively engage in public and private prayer vigils.
