40 Days for Life Prayer Vigil – Tuesdays though October
40 Days for Life is an internationally coordinated 40 day campaign that aims to end abortion locally through prayer and fasting, community outreach, and peaceful all-day vigils in front of abortion businesses. We will be meeting each Tuesday for a peaceful pro-life prayer vigil from 10:00 am – 12:00 pm at the Feminist Women’s Center, 1924 Cliff Valley Way, NE.  Please join us as your schedule permits.  If you cannot be there in person, please join us in prayer that day.
