40 Days for Life Fall Prayer Campaign
701 San Mateo NE, Albuquerque
March 1 through April 9, 2017
Daily - 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Our community will unite with cities across America and around the world for a massive, coordinated, pro-life mobilization. This is an effort to bring together people of all faiths to pray for an end to the loss of pre-born human life and for the healing of those affected by abortion.

40 Days for Life is a focused pro-life effort that consists of:
40 days of prayer & fasting
40 days of peaceful vigil
40 days of public witness

Join us in a peaceful prayer vigil in front of Planned Parenthood on San Mateo. Whether you choose to hold a sign or not, stand or kneel, or pray silently or out loud, please remember that this is a peaceful campaign. We are standing as Christ's ambassadors out there and any behavior that can be viewed as radical or extreme is counterproductive. The success that this campaign has had over the years is proof that peaceful prayer does work.

Our intentions are to be in front of Planned Parenthood and to pray over the building, the employees, and all clients to reconcile their lives to God by taking the first step of accepting and choosing life-affirming options. Holding signs, praying the rosary or any other prayer, or going over the daily 40 Days for Life devotionals are all ways we can ask God to close down Planned Parenthood and help those who have participated in abortions.

For more information go to 40daysforlife.com/local-campaigns/albuquerque/, PDL 40 Days for Life, or call the Parish office to get the Holy Child 40 Days for Life/PDL Ministry representatives contact information. If you go to the 40 Days for Life web page you can sign up to receive daily devotionals, readings and exciting news about 40 Days campaigns around the world! Since 2007 - more than12,000 lives saved from all 40 Days for Life locations – praise God!
