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 vigible component is the peaceful prayer vigil.
Due to recently passed federal legislation (Bill C-3), the prayer vigil is 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 would like to continue to maintain a public prayer witness in the area. Thus, having the vigil location downtown on the road front property allows our witness to be highly visible to community members.
How to Get Involved
During 40 Days for Life, we invite groups and individuals to participate in the prayer vigil on Norfolk Street, happening each day from 7am to 7pm. This peaceful presence sends a message of love to the community, to those who work at the facility, and those who may be seeking the abortion pill, and shows them that there are other options.
- Signs: 40 Days for Life signs can be picked up from the Guelph & Area Right to Life office at 26 Norfolk St. (Please return when finished.)
- Before Participating: Each participant must sign a Statement of Peace before attending the vigil. You can complete this step online, or print copies to return to our office.
