40 Days for Life is 40 consecutive days of 24/7 prayer, fasting, and peaceful public vigil outside a local abortion clinic or Planned Parenthood office. In Rockland, the site is Perlman Drive in Spring Valley, on public property, outside the mall where Planned is. The vigil begins on Feb. 18 at 3 p.m., and ends of March 29.
The goal is to turn hearts and minds, with God’s help, toward an awareness that all life is a sacred gift, and thus bring an end to abortion.
This mobilization of people of all faiths takes place twice a year across America and 27 countries worldwide. Over half a million people have participated, and over 10,000 babies, who might have been aborted, were saved.
Please give some thought to being part of this campaign this time. If you have been away, please come back. We need you. And, more importantly, the babies need you.
You’re asked to sign up for 1 hour a week, any time between 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., to pray on Perlman Drive. You may pray in any way you choose. If you are only available in the evening, the 40 Days continues overnight from 6 p.m. to 9 a.m. in the Perpetual Adoration Chapel or St. Gregory Barbarigo Church in Garnerville.
