40 Days for Life

The 40 days for life campaign is just two weeks away. Is a city near you participating? Have you thought about how you might join this sweeping and sustained effort to defend the defenseless? Participation does not require your physical presence in any particular location. Prayer and fasting are the foundation. You can sign up for the daily devotionals and receive them by email. It really can be that simple. Of course, you could also do more. There are opportunities for keeping vigil, community outreach, and donations are accepted. Like I told my husband when we read about this in the parish bulletin while on vacation, with such a wide array of ways to participate and since it goes on for so long we really have no excuse not to participate in some way.
