40 Days for Life Update

September 16th, 2011, Promulgated by b a

From the Rochester 40DFL campaign:

Hello pro-lifers. There’s less than two weeks to go before the Fall 2011 40 Days for Life campaign begins. Here are some important points to be aware of:

  1. If you belong to any kind of groupĀ (prayer group, bible study, parish council, youth group, etc.) suggest that your group participate in the 40 DFL vigil for at least one hour – preferably an hour each week. Having groups of people present on the sidewalk is a great way to make a strong impression.
  2. The on-line schedule is open ready to accept sign-ups for particular time slots. Just go to and click on the “Vigil Schedule” tab at the top of the page. Please note that if you registered in any of the previous campaigns you are still registered and do not need to re-register. Simply input your email address and password in the first two fields.
  3. The Kick-off Rally is Tuesday September 27 from 6:30 to 8:30 at the Focus Pregnancy Help Center, 86 University Ave. Please note that there will be no pot luck dinner this year. Instead of bringing a dish to pass we’re encouraging everyone to bring one non-perishable food item to help stock the shelves of the Focus Pregnancy Center as they strive to serve the poor of the community. Desserts and refreshments will be served. The agenda for the rally is as follows:

    6:30 – 6:45………Meet and greet
    6:45 – 7:00………Opening remarks and video
    7:00 – 7:20………Fr. Brian Carpenter speaks
    7:20 – 7:40………Carol Crossed speaks
    7:40 – 8:00………Dr. Katherine Lammers speaks
    8:00 – 8:15………Lee Strong sings
    8:15 – 8:30………Candlelight vigil on the sidewalk
