Last night I attended the opening ceremony of 40 Days for Life Chicago–Old Town. This vigil is being led by a committed group of young adults. I’ve gotten to know them over the last year and a half of Saturdays at this Planned Parenthood, and I’ve really enjoyed getting to know them.
I love the excitement they are bringing to this campaign! They’ve even got a series of YouTube videos encouraging people to come out and get involved.
I hope you’ll take some time this Lent to join your local 40 Days campaign. To see a full map of the 247 cities involved click here.
