40 Days for Life Prayer Vigil

Would you be willing to pray for one hour to end abortion? 40 Days for Life is a pro-life effort that consists of 40 days of praying, fasting, and holding a peaceful vigil in front of an abortion facility.

The fall campaign will take place from September 23 through November 1. This will be the 22nd campaign in Grand Rapids, and it will take place in front of Heritage Clinic for Women at 320 East Fulton Street. This is the only free-standing surgical abortion facility still operating in our community. Dozens of area churches have adopted a day of prayer.

Our Lady of Consolation has adopted Monday, October 19 to pray at the peaceful vigil. At least two individuals are needed for each hour of the vigil from 7:00 AM to 7:00 PM. A digital sign up will be sent soon. For more information, contact Mike Tarach at tarachm@gmail.com or visit
