The Southern Cross September 2010 Page 27 www.adelaide.catholic.org.au schools This spring, from September 22 -- October 31, our community is uniting with hundreds of other cities around the world for the largest and longest coordinated pro-life mobilization in history: the 40 Days for Life campaign. Recognizing that "with God all things are possible," people of faith are praying that this effort will help bring an end to the tragedy of abortion. 40 Days for Life is a focused pro-life campaign that has already mobilized over 350,000 people worldwide, saved more than 2,800 lives from abortion, led to the conversion of 38 abortion workers, and seen Þve abortion facilities close. 40 Days for Life is made up of three components: • Prayer and Fasting: believers throughout our city are invited to join together for 40 days of fervent prayer and fasting for an end to abortion • Peaceful Vigil: stand for life during a 40-day peaceful public witness from 7am to 7pm outside the Pregnancy Advisory Centre, 21 Belmore Tce, Woodville Park • Community Outreach: help take a positive, upbeat pro-life message to every corner of our city through media efforts, advocacy, and public visibility September 22 to October 31 Learn how you can speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves here in Adelaide by contacting Lionel W.
