The fall 40 Days for Life prayer vigil begins on September 26 in hundreds of cities around the world, including several in our Diocese. Christians will pray and offer assistance on the sidewalk, Monday - Friday, from September 26th to November 4th. This life-saving, peaceful, prayerful ministry is endorsed by Bishop Soto who encourages all Catholics to participate. By God’s grace close to 15,000 women worldwide have changed their minds, choosing LIFE for their children rather than abortion because of people praying at the sidewalk. Bishop Jaime Soto will celebrate our Diocese’s Opening Mass for the 40 Days for Life vigil on Monday, September 24th at 8am at Our Lady of Guadalupe Parish in Sacramento. The Rosary will immediately follow.
The Sacramento vigil will be held at the FPA Abortion Clinic at 2322 Butano Drive, Sacramento. Other 40 Days for Life locations within the Diocese of Sacramento include Redding, Chico, Vallejo, Fairfield and Yuba City. Please visit 40daysforlife.com for more information about each site.
