Pray without ceasing: 40 Days For Life 365 kicks off this weekend

This year’s 40 Days for Life campaign will mark a new beginning; namely, a beginning of the end of abortion in Colorado.

This Saturday, Aug. 14, the very first 40 Days for Life 365 campaign will launch at Planned Parenthood in Denver. The event marks the launch of the campaign here in Denver, which is different from the normal bi-annual 40 Days for Life campaigns that take place in the spring and fall.

“We believe this will be a historical day that marks ‘The Beginning of the End of Abortion’ at this PPH facility,” said Maria Elisa Olivas, community coordinator for Catholic Charities of Denver. “This will be the day that the Christian community of Denver pledges to have someone praying for the unborn not just 40 days, but every day this PPH is open.”

After years of development, 40 Days for Life 365 was launched by national 40 Days for Life organization late last year, and they are rolling it out into various locations around the nation. The Planned Parenthood facility in Stapleton is the nation’s second largest abortion clinic, and the goal of the campaign is to have dedicated prayer outside of the clinic every single day the facility is open, which is Monday through Saturday each week.

The kick-off event runs from 8 a.m. – 11 a.m. and will feature talks from pro-life leaders, the recitation of the rosary and Divine Mercy Chaplet, and a Mass celebrated outside of the clinic to conclude. Pro-life groups will also have booths set up for those seeking more information or ways to get involved.

For questions and more details, contact Maria Elisa Olivas at 720-799-9265 or molivas@ccdenver.org.
