September 26 - November 4

Ottawa, ON Canada

Take a stand for life

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.

As of February 1, 2018, a law was enacted which makes it illegal to have any type of negative activity regarding abortion within a radius of 50 meters of an abortion facility. We will continue our prayer vigil and now gather at Bank and Queen Streets, just outside the bubble zone limit.

Depuis le 1er février 2018, il est illégal de protester contre l'avortement à proximité d'une clinique d'avortement, dans un rayon de 50 m. Notre vigile de prière se poursuivra donc à un nouvel emplacement, au coin des rues Bank et Queen, soit à l'EXTÉRIEUR de la zone de 50 m. Veuillez remplir ce formulaire pour indiquer les heures auxquelles vous (et/ou votre groupe) participerez à la vigile de prière silencieuse au coin des rues Bank et Queen.


We are also launching a new initiative - the St. Clare Project ( - where nine consecutive masses (Sep.8-16) will be said with the intention of praying for the closure of the Bank Street Abortion Facility and the conversion of the abortionists and staff.
