40 Days for Life is a focused pro–life campaign that generates measurable life-saving results. So far, 40 Days for Life campaigns have been conducted in 769 communities in 50 nations. More than 14,600 children have been reported as saved from abortion. Local abortion numbers have dropped – as much as 28%. Post-abortive women (and men) are finding healing and forgiveness. In each city, hundreds – more than 1,000 in some cases – are getting involved with local life-saving ministry efforts for the first time. Praise God!

40 Days for Life began on Wednesday, September 25, with an opening Mass at Holy Trinity Church, 1118 N. Noble, Chicago, at 7:30 AM.  Bishop Rojas will celebrate the Mass.

40 Days for Life is a 40 Day Prayer Vigil for protection of the unborn.  This ministry is more important now than ever in Illinois.  The ongoing vigil will be held in a public right of way at Family Planning Associates located at 4341 N. Milwaukee in Chicago, IL.

If you would like to be part of a parish group which attends the official vigil up to November 4, please contact Paul Fairbanks at track7911@gmail.com.
