Knowing that “with God, all things are possible,” people of faith and conscience unite in 40 days of prayer and fasting for an end to abortion. The public centerpiece of the 40 Days for Life campaign is a prayer vigil outside a facility that provides abortion services in your community. It is a peaceful and educational presence. Join us for this campaign, coming to several points across our diocese.
Kick-off event: Saturday, Sept. 18
We will begin with a rosary at 6 p.m. followed by interdenominational worship/prayer at 6:30 pm. We will finish our evening with a candlelight vigil.
Our vigil site will be covered from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily, about 16 hours each day for the 40 days of the campaign, Sept 22 to Oct. 31. Participants will stand on the sidewalk near the corner of Broadway and Palomar in Chula Vista (mostly near the bus stop on Broadway). It is in a public right of way near Planned Parenthood, located 1295 Broadway, Chula Vista.
Mid-point: – Oct. 10, 2:30 p.m., rosary at 3 p.m., interfaith rally at 4 p.m.
Closing celebration – Oct. 31 at 2:30 p.m., rosary at 3 p.m.; potluck to follow (if a site is confirmed).
