DANBURY—The “40 Days for Life Vigil” will be observed within the Diocese of Bridgeport from September 26 to November 4.
“Our community will unite with many others from coast to coast—and internationally—for a major simultaneous pro-life mobilization—the 40 Days for Life campaign,” said Christine Murphy of Danbury who is organizing the vigil.
Murphy, a parishioner of St. Mary Parish in Norwalk, said the vigil will be in the public right-of-way outside the Planned Parenthood facility located at 44 Main St., Danbury.
“This is the largest 40 Days for Life Campaign ever, with vigils taking place in 415 cities around the world. Faithful believers are praying that these efforts will mark the beginning of the end of abortion,” she said.
She said the mission of the campaign is to bring together the body of Christ in a spirit of unity during a focused 40 day campaign of prayer, fasting and peaceful activism.
“The vigil is one of repentance to seek God’s favor, and to turn hearts and minds,” said Murphy. “What will God accomplish when people of faith across our community and beyond unite for 40 days of prayer and fasting?”
