It is a focused pro-life campaign with a vision to access God’s power through prayer, fasting, and peaceful vigil to end abortion in America.
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 in America.
In the first 3 quarters of 2010, Planned Parenthood NE (2751 Comly Road) killed over 2600 children by abortion. Saturday mornings are their busiest time. Please stand with us as we peacefully pray the Rosary outside their abortuary every Saturday from 7 to 8 am.
National Day of Prayer and Penance
In February 2002, the Catholic Church established that throughout the United States, January 22nd would be observed as a day of prayer and penance for the offenses to human dignity caused by abortion [General Instruction of the Roman Missal, no 373]: In all the dioceses of the United States of America, January 22 (or January 23, when January 22 falls on a Sunday) shall be observed as a particular day of penance for violations to the dignity of the human person committed through acts of abortion, and of prayer for the full restoration of the legal guarantee of the right to life. The Mass ‘For Peace and Justice’ (no. 22 of the ‘Masses for Various Needs’) should be celebrated with violet vestments as an appropriate liturgical observance for this day.
