40 Days for Life Prayer Campaign

‘40 Days for Life’ prayer campaign, February 14 to March 25 !!

St. James will stand in a peaceful vigil in the public right-of-way outside Planned Parenthood at 3105 N. 93 St. on Saturday, March 24, from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

You can sign up for an hour of prayer on the chart located in the church’s narthex. Signups will take place the weekends of March 10-11 and 17-18. Please consider committing to one hour of prayer to witness to the sacredness of Human Life. This can be a powerful spiritual Lenten exercise.

“Each time we stand outside an abortion facility, we’re at the scene of the cross.” St. John, Mary Magdalene, and the Blessed Virgin Mary stood at the foot of the cross affirming Christ’s dignity as He silently suffered and died.

Even though they couldn’t remove Our Lord from the cross, nor relieve His temporal suffering, they remained steadfast, offering Him the dignity that others had tried to strip from Him.

Witnessing at an abortion facility serves the same purpose. Babies are being lead to their deaths. We try to save them, but if that fails, our presence witnesses to the dignity that others try to strip from them. WILL YOU BE THERE?
