This fall, from September 23–November 1, the Chester County community is uniting with 588 other cities (the largest ever) around the world for the 40 Days for Life campaign. Recognizing that “with God all things are possible,” people of faith are praying that this effort will help bring an end to the tragedy of abortion.

40 Days for Life is a focused pro-life campaign that has already mobilized hundreds of thousands of people worldwide, saved thousands of lives from abortion, led to the conversion of abortion workers, and seen abortion facilities close.

  • Prayer & Fasting: Believers throughout our community are invited to join together for 40 days of fervent prayer and fasting for an end to abortion
  • Peaceful Vigil: stand for life during a 40-day peaceful public witness outside the Planned Parenthood in West Chester.
  • Community Outreach: help take a positive, upbeat pro-life message to our community.

The Respect Life Committee of St. Peter Parish has volunteered to pray in front of Planned Parenthood on Tuesday, October 6th and Wednesday, October 21st  from 7am – 7pm.
