Winter 40 Days for Life Campaign Comes to an End

Day 40 -- 1On Palm Sunday — Day 40 of the 40 Days for Life campaign — prolifers gathered to officially close the winter vigil with a recitation of the Divine Mercy Chaplet and the rosary. The prayer site is on Perlman Drive in Spring Valley, outside the Pascack Plaza Mall where Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider, has an office.

40 Days for Life is an international program of prayer, fasting and public outreach to end abortion. It is held twice a year, and a team of local volunteers commits to a round-the-clock 40 Day prayer vigil. It was estimated that nearly 500 unborn children around the world at the 354 locations were the vigil took place were saved during the past 40 days as their mothers rejected abortion and chose life.

 

40 Days for Life Begins

0927171512b_HDRSept. 28 — For the 21st time, the 40 Days for Life prayer vigil in Rockland is taking place on Perlman Drive in Spring Valley, outside the mall where the Planned Parenthood office is located. Fifteen supporters came to pray at the opening hour yesterday. The prayers were led by Fr. Matthias, a priest visiting from Nigeria.

The 40 Days for Life is an international, interfaith movement whose goal is to end abortion through prayer, fasting, and community outreach. Volunteers come to a designated prayer site to pray for the victims of abortion, those harmed by it, for those involved in the abortion industry, and for all who strive to defend life. The prayer goes on 24/7 for 40 days. It is currently taking place in 375 locations across the U.S. and in 24 other countries. Over 13,300 babies have been saved from abortion during 40 Days for Life vigils, which began in 2007.

In Rockland, the prayer site is on Perlman Drive in Spring Valley from 9 am to 5 pm every day, and then prayer continues through the night at the Eucharistic Adoration Chapel at St. Gregory Barbarigo Church in Garnerville. The vigil will go on for 40 Days and end on Nov. 5

Volunteers are always needed. If you can commit to one hour a week, please call 845-492-6709 or email rachelminister1@aol.com. And, as they say, “walk-ins” are always welcome. If you have an hour to spare, come on down. You may pray in any manner you choose. Be assured this is a peaceful event, held on public property.

 

40 Days for Life — Week 1

eileenfreezing4LIFE

Freezing for Life! Cold, raw winds chilled the volunteers on the first week of the Spring 2017 40 Days for Life campaign. But hearts and spirits were warm.

We are now at Day 8 of the 40 days of peaceful, prayerful witness for life at the Spring Valley “prayer site,” public property along Perlman Drive, outside the Pascack Plaza Mall where the Planned Parenthood office is.

And this is Year 9 of the 40 Days campaign!  Nine years — “like a novena,” as Richard Bruno, county prolife leader,  said last night at the monthly first-Monday prolife mass at St. Francis’ of Assisi Church in West Nyack.

Will this be the year when Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion provider in America,  finally closes its doors in Rockland? Please pray for all those who are suffering because of the abortion industry. Pray for the employees and volunteers at the Spring Valley Planned Parenthood. Please pray for all the women and men who have come to PP, and who will come, that God will guide them to choose life.

If you would like to join the local 40 Days for Life group in peaceful, nonconfrontational prayer to end abortion, please email RachelMinister1@aol.com or call 845-492-6709.  Many people are needed to provide a 24/7 presence of prayer for 40 Days.

40 Days for Life Begins Across America

2-flagsThe spring 40 Days for Life campaign began on March 1 in 340 different locations across the U.S. and in cities in 29 foreign countries.

The 40 Days for Life is an international program of public prayer and fasting to end abortion. It’s held twice a year, during Lent and during the autumn. Since it began in 1998, 12,668 lives have been saved from abortion during 40 Days vigils,  143 abortion workers have quit, and 83 abortion clinics have closed their doors.

In Rockland County, the 40 Days for Life takes place on Perlman Drive in Spring Valley, on public property outside the Pascack Plaza mall where the Planned Parenthood Office is. Every day from now until April 9, you’ll find volunteers praying there from 9 am to 6 pm. Overnight, prayer continues at the Eucharistic Adoration Chapel of St. Gregory Barbarigo Church in Garnerville.

If you would like to join this group in peaceful, nonconfrontational prayer to end abortion, please email RachelMinister1@aol.com or call 845-492-6709.  Many people are needed to provide a 24/7 presence of prayer for 40 Days. It’s an important thing to do for Lent — praying for children lost to abortion, praying for mothers considering abortion, and praying for a change of heart for all those involved in the abortion industry. And, of course, we pray for each other, that we may respond with courage, compassion, wisdom, and generosity to all those caught up in the evil of abortion.

40 Days for Life Bus Comes to New York

bus-in-newburghOn Sept. 30, the 40 Days for Life Bus Tour came to Newburgh, N.Y., stopping before the Planned Parenthood office on Lake Street for a 30 minute prayer service.

A group of fifteen 40 Days Life for volunteers were there and about 20 people from Planned Parenthood (wearing pink in the photo).

“The bus kept driving slowly between us ” said a 40 Days participant. “The PP people pretty much stayed quiet the whole time.”

The tour is making stops in more than 125 cities to hold rallies and prayer vigils across all 50 states. Its purpose is to share its prolife message with the public and encourage the local volunteers who have taken up the challenge to pray for 40 days outside abortion facilities and Planned Parenthood offices.
