40 Days for Life - Lent 2018

From February 14th to March 25th our community will unite with many others from coast to coast – and internationally – for a major simultaneous pro-life mobilization – the 40 Days for Life campaign. Faithful believers are praying that these efforts will mark the beginning of the end of abortion.

40 Days for Life is a focused pro-life campaign with a vision to access God’s power through prayer, fasting, and peaceful vigil to end abortion.

The mission of the campaign is to bring together the body of Christ in a spirit of unity during a focused 40 day campaign of prayer, fasting, and peaceful activism, with the purpose of repentance, to seek God’s favor to turn hearts and minds from a culture of death to a culture of life, thus bringing an end to abortion.

One of the strengths of 40 Days for Life is its simplicity. The campaign is made up of three key components:

  • Prayer and fasting: inviting people of faith throughout our city and across the country to join together for 40 days of fervent prayer and fasting for an end to abortion
  • Peaceful Vigil: standing for life through a 40-day peaceful public witness outside the local Planned Parenthood abortion facility, 2314 Auburn Avenue in Cincinnati.
  • Community Outreach: taking a positive, upbeat pro-life message to every corner of our city through media efforts, church and school outreach, petition drives, and public visibility

St. Gertrude Church will participate in 40 Days for Life on Wednesday, March 21st at Planned Parenthood. The hours are 7am to 7pm.

Sign up for this will take place after the Sunday Masses, 8, 9:30, 11, and 12:30.
