40 Days for Life - Peaceful Prayer and Witness for Life

Posted on September 20, 2021 in: 40DaysForLife, ProLife

40 Days for Life - Peaceful Prayer and Witness for Life

This year, the 40 Days for Life Campaign runs from Wednesday, Sept. 22 through Sunday, Oct. 31. We hope you will join pro-life people of all faiths by praying, fasting, and attending the 40 Days For Life peaceful prayer vigil held outside Planned Parenthood at 12 Case St. in Norwich.

The Norwich 40 Days For Life Campaign will begin with a vigil Mass at St. Patrick’s Cathedral on Tuesday, Sept. 21, at 7 p.m.. Bishop Michael R. Cote will be the principal celebrant and Fr. Michael Bovino will be the homilist. 

Never participated in praying at Planned Parenthood before? There’s nothing to be afraid of. It’s not a protest. We peacefully pray during daylight hours on the public sidewalk. 

Start by signing up for an hour with your parish representative on your parish’s designated day, or sign up for any hour, on any day, on our website. It’s nice to do this with a friend or small group from your parish. Park at Friendly’s, 105 W. Town St. in Norwich (Norwichtown). They gave us permission to park there. (And it’s a nice treat to enjoy a lunch or ice cream after praying with family and friends).  Friendly’s and Case St. are best reached by Exit 14 on Rt. 395, the first exit north of Route 2.

Outside the facility, we witness for Life by our presence, and hold signs, if you wish, that read “Praying for an end to abortion.” And we pray our Rosaries: To change mothers’ hearts that might be arriving to consider ending their pregnancy; for an end to abortion; and that this Planned Parenthood facility will soon close.

Any questions? Please contact the Norwich 40 Days For Life Team at (860) 875-5770 or 40DaysNorwich@gmail.com Thank you and may God bless you, your family, and your future children and grandchildren. Amen.

U.S. Bishops’ Pro-Life Chairman on Passage of House Bill Imposing 'Abortion on Demand' Nationwide
WASHINGTON -- Last Friday, the U.S. House of Representatives passed the Women’s Health Protection Act, H.R. 8296, by a vote of 219 to 210. This bill would impose abortion on demand nationwide at any stage of pregnancy and would eliminate pro-life laws at every level of government -- including parental notification for minor girls, informed consent, and health and safety protections specific to abortion facilities. H.R. 8296 also would compel all Americans to support abortions here and abroad with their tax dollars and would likely force health care providers and profe...
