40 Days for Life - Feb. 26 - April 5, 2020
Would you be able to pray outside the abortion clinic for one hour this campaign?
The spring campaign of 40 Days for Life runs from Feb. 26 - April 5/20. 40 Days for Life is a pro-life prayer campaign that includes prayer & fasting, prayer vigil, and community outreach. The most visible component is the prayer vigil, which takes place outside the abortion facility.
It is our hope to have every single vigil hour covered this campaign - to have at least one person praying outside the abortion clinic every single vigil hour. We hope you will be able to spend some time praying outside the abortion clinic (Woman's Health Options - 12409-109 A Ave, Edmonton). Because of the access zone law, we need to be at least 50 metres away from the abortion facility. You can see the access zone map here (download the map under "Resources" on the right hand side of page): https//40daysforlife.com/local-campaigns/edmonton.
Although it's not mandatory, we encourage you to hold a sign. It helps to spread the pro-life message to the community, and could just be the 'sign' that someone needs to see in order for them to choose life. If you would like a sign, they are available at St. Andrew's Centre (12720 - 111 Ave., Edmonton) in the foyer, under the literature table. They are also available here at the office (#310, 6770 -129 Ave., Edmonton). Office hours vary. Please call first to make sure we are here.
We recommend going out in groups of two or more. If you don't have someone to go out with, contact us, and we will make sure there is someone out there with you.
You can sign up for the vigil at the 40 Days for Life website https://40daysforlife.com/local-campaigns/edmonton/. For more info, please contact us at or phone 780-425-1637.
