40 Days for Life
prayer, fasting & peaceful vigil
February 22 - April 2 , 2023
Thank you to everyone who participated in our Spring 2022 campaign. Please join us in prayer, fasting, and peaceful vigil for the Spring 2023 40 Days for Life in Guelph!
About 40 Days for Life
Worldwide, the 40 Days for Life campaign is saving lives and ending abortion. Through prayer, fasting and peaceful vigil in locations across the world, we seek to change hearts and encourage a culture of life.
Abortion happens in our community and in communities across the world; 40 Days for Life recognizes that we need to respond as a community through prayer and outreach.
Though all aspects of 40 Days for Life are crucial in our effort to end abortion, the most visible component is the peaceful prayer vigil.
Due to recently passed federal legislation (Bill C-3), the 2022 prayer vigil was temporarily relocated to the road front stairway on Norfolk Street leading up to the Basilica of Our Lady Immaculate in downtown Guelph. Since the SHORE Centre (Guelph’s abortion pill clinic) remains in downtown Guelph, we continued to maintain a public prayer witness in the area. Thus, having the vigil location downtown on the road front property allowed our witness to be highly visible to community members.
