View from the choir

I am a Catholic layperson and Secular Franciscan with a sense of humor. After years in the back pew watching, I have moved into the choir. It's nice to see faces instead of the backs of heads. But I still maintain God has a sense of humor - and that we are created in God's image.

40 Days For Life Update

The 40 Days For Life team held a teleconference (also online) on Thursday to help get ready for the September 23-November 1 campaign.

Some details:

This Fall there will be a record number of cities involved - 208 (last Fall, there were 177).

There will be vigils in 45 states, the District of Columbia, 5 Canadian Provinces, and, for the first time, Denmark.

The 40 Days effort, which began with vigils in just one city in 2004, went national in 2007.

There have been 466 vigils involving 215,000 people in 50 states and four countries.

Thus far, 1,561 babies have been confirmed saved. In addition, 18 abortion clinic workers have quit the clinics because of the campaigns, and three clinics have closed.

I'll post more details as we get going.

But Rochester area readers and bloggers - how about joining together? We can be prayer warriors, and maybe some of us could even volunteer for an hour at Planned Parenthood to pray there. Rochester Catholic, Cleansing Fire, DOR Catholic, Interstate Catholic, Journey to a New Pentecost, Musings from one of the women, View From the Choir and more? Why not!
