40 Days for Life Campaign

… began on February 18 and continues till March 29. We encourage parishioners to take part in two ways:

  • As an individual, you may offer to God forty days of prayer and sacrifice, seeking His blessing on an end to abortion in Canada.
  • Those who are willing and able may commit to an hour or more of silent prayer and witness at a vigil outside Women’s Hospital, at the corner of West 29th Avenue and Heather Street, Vancouver.

Holy Family has been assigned Saturday, March 28, for our 24-hour vigil outside Women’s Hospital. Specific hours may be chosen after Mass on March 15 and 22.

More information is found on the blue sheet in the foyer of the church. Thank you for helping with this important endeavour to end abortion in Canada.
