Eileen Peterson, Msgr. Robert McCabe, pastor of St. Mary of the Assumption in Haverstraw, and Fr. Nicholas Callahan lead the recitation of the Sorrowful Mysteries of the Rosary at the 40 Days for Life closing ceremony.

The spring 40 Days for Life campaign ended at 3 p.m. on Palm Sunday, April 13, with a prayer service on Perlman Drive in Spring Valley near the Rockland Planned Parenthood office.

For 40 days, those called to stand witness during this 24-hour-a-day campaign have sent a powerful message to the community about the tragic reality of abortion.

And they have sought God’s help for women at risk of having an abortion, innocent children at risk of perishing, men and women who carry the pain of past abortions, workers at Planned Parenthood facilities, and for healing throughout our nation and the world.

And, thanks be to God, as of last week 536 babies (that we know of) had been saved from death, according to reports coming in from 40 Days for Life vigils nationwide.
