40 Days for Life Campaign

The 40 Days for Life Campaign is a continuous prayer vigil for 40 days in front of abortion facilities. This is a peaceful, legal event that is occurring at the same time in hundreds of cities throughout the world, including eight locations in San Diego and Imperial Valley. More than 20,000 babies have been saved, and more than 100 abortion centers have been closed during 40 Days for Life since it started in 2007.

Knowing that “with God, all things are possible,” people of faith and conscience unite in 40 days of prayer and fasting for an end to abortion. The public centerpiece of the 40 Days for Life campaign is a prayer vigil outside a facility that provides abortion services in your community. It is a peaceful and educational presence. Join us for this campaign, coming to several points across our diocese. The campaign occurs in the spring and fall.
