“40 Days for Life” is an intensive pro-life campaign promoting 40 days of prayer and fasting, peaceful vigils at abortion facilities, and grassroots educational outreach. The 40-day duration calls to mind Biblical stories in which God brings about world-changing transformation in 40 days. This year St. Louis and Columbia will be participating in 40 Days for Life here in Missouri.
A kick-off rally was held in St. Louis last Sunday and one will take place in Columbia Tuesday March 8 at 6:00 pm at Flanagan Hall, (adjacent to Our Lady of Lourdes Church), 907 Bernadette. Following the rally there will be a candlelight vigil at Planned Parenthood in Columbia, 711 N. Providence Rd., from 8-9:00 pm.
40 Days for Life peaceful vigils will be held March 9 – April 17 everyday at:
