piThe Helpers of God’s Precious Infants is organizing a Day of Vigil for the Unborn on Tuesday, March 25th, 2014 (Feast of the Annunciation). This is an opportunity to perform a work of mercy during Lent. The day of vigil will be very similar to the 40 Days for Life campaign. Vigilers are asked to stand across the street from 65 Bank St. (just in front of the 240 Sparks St. Mall). There will be a few signs available. Sidewalk counsellors will be present for most of the day. Some of the students from St. Paul Students for Life will commit to taking an hour so as soon as we have the timeslot, we will update you and invite you to join with us!

Saint Paul Students for Life: 40 Days for Life

This post was written for Saint Paul Students for Life by srmarylouisepd. It does not necessarily represent the views of NCLN.

40daysTomorrow, 25th of September marks the beginning of the daily vigil of prayer, fasting and outreach for the 40 Days for Life. 40 Days for Life vigils will begin in 306 cities from coast to coast in North America — and in eight other countries around the world.40 Days for Life is a focused pro-life effort that consists of:

-40 days of prayer and fasting for an end of abortion

-40 days of peaceful vigil

-40 days of community outreach

The latest closure of the abortion clinic in Midlands, Texas, USA, brings the number of closed abortion facilities — where 40 Days for Life prayer vigils have been held to 40!

For the next forty days, individuals and community outreach groups will gather near the abortion mill here on Bank Street, Ottawa to pray and give peaceful witness to the dignity of life. St. Paul’s Students for Life will also join in this event.

The Scripture passage that sums up the spirit of 40 Days for Life is 2 Chronicles 7:14 — “If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”
