40 Days for Life

“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”

Joshua 1:9

Knowing that “with God, all things are possible,” people of faith and conscience unite in 40 days of prayer during the national “40 Days for Life” campaign. Prayer keeps us rooted in the fact that it is our desire to carry out God’s will. The visible, public centerpiece of 40 Days for Life is a focused, 40-day, non-stop, round-the-clock prayer vigil outside a single Planned Parenthood center or other abortion facilities around the nation. It is a peaceful and educational presence. Those who are called to stand witness during this 24-hour-a-day presence send a powerful message to the community about the tragic reality of abortion.

From September 22 to October 31, a group of prayer warriors from Holy Cross will join with others from the community and pray outside Planned Parenthood (2226 E Central Ave).  We hope you’ll join us!
