40 Days for Life Opening Rally: 7 p.m., Wednesday September 28, 2016 at Capital Care Abortion Facility, 1160 W. Sylvania Ave., Toledo, OH. Fr. Michael Dandurand will join us and we’ll have a post-abortive testimony as a part of our opening vigil! The 40 Days for Life will run September 28th through November 6th and we will try to cover the abortion facility in prayer each one of those days for 12 hours a day from 7 am – 7 pm. If you are able to drive by to pray or are willing to sign up for an hour please go to 40daysforlife.com/toledo right now! We have a lot of great coverage on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday’s when the facility is open, but we need a lot of help the other days to cover the facility in prayer. We cannot stand idly by as more lives are lost, and minds and hearts wounded there. Please join us and perhaps we’ll add to the 12 lives that have been saved there the last two years through our loving presence. Again, visit www.40daysforlife.com today to find out more information and spread the word!!!
