THE BEGINNING OF THE END OF ABORTION.
September 22nd - October 31st

This year's campaign will run from Wednesday, September 22 thru Sunday, Oct. 31. We will have people standing vigil and praying across the street from Planned Parenthood every hour that they are open.   
 

“40 Days for Life” emphasizes prayer and fasting, peaceful/prayerful vigil and community outreach. For people who cannot get to York, you can participate at home with your prayers and fasting. If you are able to volunteer for an hour or so to stand vigil, we ask you to log into 
www.40daysforlife.com/york and sign up for whichever hours you want to stand with us.

 

Know this: You will never be alone. There will always be a seasoned prayer warrior with you. What about "community outreach?” Don't let that bother you. Just by your presence you are sending a message to people in the neighborhood and those entering Planned Parenthood.
 

If you have never done this before and are feeling apprehensive, talk to us or talk to another parishioner who has participated. This is our 7th year of Fall Campaigns.  
 

Should you run into a hiccup trying to log in or creating an account, call or email Tom Evans, 717-235-8833 or tomevans54@comcast.net
 

Please join us in our efforts to save babies, moms & dads from abortion.
