Please take note of the following guidelines when participating in the 40 Days for Life prayer vigil outside of the Abortion Mill. All registrants are expected to respect these guidelines as a condition to their participation.
Statement of Peace - If you do not agree with this Statement, you are not welcome to participate.
Greetings - When you arrive at "Ground Zero" (the place of Vigil outside of the Abortion Mill), please greet your co-vigilers and introduce yourself, but please do not engage in prolonged chit chat. We are there to pray and sacrifice, not to engage in idle talk. The Vigil Campaign is meant to be a time of intense prayer and solemnity.
Prayer Zone - Vigilers are asked to stand ACROSS THE STREET FROM THE ABORTION FACILITY Only designated sidewalk counsellors are permitted to be on the same side of the abortion mill at 960 Lawrence Ave. When the sidewalk counsellors engage pregnant women or their entourage, please do not stare. Instead, keep your head down
and pray hard. NOTE: If you are interested in sidewalk counseling, please call Christina at Campaign Life Coalition. Sidewalk counselors are instructed to obey all laws & must respect when women/men say "no" to information. We are there to show love & compassion at all times.
Engagement - If a member of the public wants to engage you on the issue of abortion, move away from the "prayer zone" so as to not disturb the other vigilers. You are not required to engage anyone, but if you do so, please show some decorum and common sense. Do not raise your voice or become animated. Simply state your views calmly, rationally, and with Christian charity. The 40 Days for Life Campaign does not support abortion under any circumstances, rape and incest included.
Pray Quietly - The 40 Days for Life Vigil Campaign is meant to be a silent prayer time. However, if you want to pray audibly, please move some distance away to respect those who wish to pray in silence.
Depository - There will be a plastic storage bin with the official 40 Days for Life Prayer Booklet, a registration binder, pro-life resources, and other material.
Campaign Vigil Relief Phone Number - Vigilers are encouraged to bring their cellular phones with them to report emergencies. If you do not have one, there is a Bell payphone nearby. Please be sure to have 50 cents available to make a phone call, if necessary. In the event that the next vigiler has not arrived by the time your shift has ended, you are asked to phone one of the two following numbers:
647-638-5433 (*Please leave a message and someone will get back to you as soon as possible)
