From September 26 to November 4, our community will take part in 40 Days for Life … a groundbreaking, coordinated international mobilization. We pray that, with God’s help, this will mark the beginning of the end of abortion in our city — and beyond.
NOTE: The 40 Days for Campaign has been suspended.
On October 25, Bill 163 (bubble zone legislation) went to third reading and was passed by a vote of 86 to 1. The only MPP to vote against the bill was MPP Jack MacLaren. The bill also received royal assent, meaning it is now law.
Because it is now illegal for us to gather and hold a sign in front of the abortuary on Bank Street, and since 40 Days for Life does not want to put anyone in a position of having a confrontation with the police, we are asking that you continue to fast and pray until the end of the campaign on November 5, but not on Bank Street. St. Patrick's Basilica is open during the day from 6AM to 6PM, we can pray there, or in our own church.
In the mean time we will continue to fast and pray for an end to abortion and I will get back to you as soon as details for the Closing Rally are finalized.
