Fall 40 Days for Life campaign launches Sept. 27

ATTLEBORO, Mass. — The 19th consecutive 40 Days for Life campaign is about to launch its fall session in Attleboro. Organizers are looking forward to seeing all of the faithful supporters who have joined them in the past to witness and pray as they begin the 10th year of activity. 

From September 27 to November 5, the community will take part in 40 Days for Life to pray that, with God’s help, this will mark the beginning of the end to abortion in our diocese — and beyond.

The prayerful gathering takes place on the public right-of-way outside Four Women Health Services Clinicthe only abortion-providing clinic in the diocese, located at 150 Emory Street in Attleboro. Vigil participants should gather in Angell Park, across the street from the clinic complex entrance. Parking is available on any of the side streets abutting the park and the clinic — Hillside Avenue and Park Street are the most convenient.

They are also looking for new volunteers to join in this most important work. Please take the time to sign up for a vigil on the website at www.40daysforlife.com/attleboro.

The Attleboro 40 Days for Life campaign will hold a Kick-Off Prayer Service on Saturday, September 30 at 8 a.m. at Angell Park. A Mass at 9 a.m. will follow at St. Vincent de Paul Church, 71 Linden Street in Attleboro.

There will also be a fundraising dinner to benefit the Abundant Hope Pregnancy Resource Center, 182 East Street in Attleboro, on October 5 at 6 p.m. at Lake Pearl Luciano’s Waterfront, 299 Creek Street in Wrentham. Visit www.ahprc.org for more information.

The Attleboro 40 Days for Life campaign extends its heartfelt thanks to all those who have generously supported them in the past and continue to do so. May God bless you for all you do on behalf of the unborn.
