This weekend we will again be present at all Masses in hope that if you have not signed up yet to pray at the abortion clinic, All Women's Health Center at
4131 Central Avenue, you will stop by and do so. This effort is part of the national 40 Days for Life campaign that begins Wednesday, September 22.

Your prayers and presence at the abortion clinic is so very important. Please check your calendar. We have a lot of empty spaces that need to be filled.

The 40 Days for Life campaign includes 40 days of prayer and fasting combined with round-the-clock vigil at the abortion clinic. It also includes proactive community outreach.

On Tuesday, September 21 at 7 p.m we will again have our kick-off at the abortion clinic. It will last an hour. Bishop Robert Lynch will lead the prayers. Please come join our bishop in prayer.

Those who would like to carpool down there will meet at the parish parking lot. We will leave at 6:15 p.m.

For those who are unable/or not interested in the carpool then please come and join us at the clinic.

The 40 Days for Life campaign started in 2o04 in Texas. It now has spread to cities across the country as well as cities in Australia, Canada and Northern Ireland. The 40 days idea comes from the Bible. Noah endured 40 days of the flood. Moses spent 40 days on the mountain. Jesus spent 40 days in the desert.

Below is a video from the 40 Days for Life Web site.
