40 Days for Life
"40 Days for Life is a community-based campaign that draws attention to the evil of abortion through the use of a three-point program:
- Prayer and fasting
- Constant vigil
- Community outreach
40 Days for Life takes a determined, peaceful approach to showing local communities the consequences of abortion in their own neighborhoods, for their own friends and families. It puts into action a desire to cooperate with God in the carrying out of His plan for the end of abortion in America.
The 40-day campaign tracks Biblical history, where God used 40-day periods to transform individuals, communities ... and the entire world. From Noah in the flood to Moses on the mountain to the disciples after Christ's resurrection, it is clear that God sees the transformative value of His people accepting and meeting a 40-day challenge."
Our local "40 Days for Life" campaign focuses on the Sacramento Planned Parenthood.
For more information about the 40 Days for Life nationwide campaign, please see the 40 Days for Life website.
In March, a number of people from our local parish went to the Sacramento Planned Parenthood to pray for the lives being taken at the facility. Please click here to view photos and read an article by one of the participants.
The Spring 2008 campaign coordinated with the observance of Lent and took place from February 6 to March 16. Please click here to view photos of two days of the event.
From September 26 through November 4, 2007, pro-life people are coming together for the most
powerful, prayerful, peaceful pro-life event in history. They will be praying for LIFE at our area’s busiest abortion facility, Planned Parenthood in downtown Sacramento. This was the closest Forty Days for Life event in our Yuba-Sutter area, where people came together for 24 hours, each day, for
prayerful presence in front of this facility. Coordinated by the Yuba Sutter Right to Life in our area, many participated and found many blessings provided by our Lord.
