40 Days for Life The 40 Days for Life is a nationwide grassroots campaign drawing attention to the realities of abortion through peaceful vigil, prayer, fasting, and almsgiving. Each year, hundreds of people stand witness outside of St. Louis’ abortion facility, praying for an end to the injustice of abortion. This fall’s 40 Days for Life campaign runs from September 26 through October 28. The CTK Pro-Life Group asks the parish family to join us in praying for an end to abortion on Sunday, October 28 from 7am to 12pm. Please sign up to be witness for LIFE for at least one hour during this time in front of Planned Parenthood (4251 Forest Park Avenue 63108). Please contact Jamie LaBelle at firstname.lastname@example.org or 618-806-2809 to sign up for your time!
