40 Days for Life  

Wednesday, September 26 - Sunday, November 4, 2018

40 Days for Life is a beautiful opportunity to join others in prayer, fasting, keeping vigil, and reaching out to the community. Through God, lives are changed during 40 Days for Life: people at various peaceful prayer locations have helped women embrace life for their children, watch as abortion clinic workers have quit their jobs, and experienced some clinics close completely. We often forget the incredible power of prayer and loving witness, but 40 Says for Life reminds us of the fruits of dialogue with the Lord and others. Join 40 Days for Life and make a difference for life!
