40 Days for Life Begins Today in Southfield, Michigan
By Mother of God Church :: Tuesday, February 5, 2008 :: 72900 Views :: Law & Order, Chaldean Churches

Michgian, USA - Mother of God Chaldean Catholic church invites the Chaldean community to join the 40 Days for Life Campaign.  The event kick’s-off today at 7:00 PM at the Church of Transfiguration (Formerly St. Michael) located on 25225 Code Road, Southfield, MI 48033.  

During the season of Lent leading up to the celebration of Christ's resurrection, from February 6 - March 16, 2008, our community will be uniting with 58 other cities in 31 states for a large simultaneous pro-life mobilization – the nationwide 40 Days for Life campaign. People of faith across America are praying that this effort will mark the beginning of the end of abortion.

The event will feature Associate Priest of Priests for Life Fr. Peter West and Michelle Yax, Director of the Mother and Unborn Baby Care Center.  40 Days for Life is a focused pro-life campaign that has generated measurable lifesaving results in more than 80 cities where it has been implemented.  Some locations have reported as much as a 28% drop in local abortion numbers and hundreds of new people getting involved in local lifesaving ministry efforts.
 
The 40 Days of Life campaign is made up of three key components:

Prayer and Fasting:  Inviting people of faith throughout our city to join together for 40 days of fervent prayer and fasting for an end to abortion.

Peaceful Vigil:  standing for life through a 40-day (960 Continuous Hours) peaceful public witness outside the Woman Care abortion facility at 28505 Southfield Rd. (1/4 mile south of 12 Mile Rd.)

Community Outreach:  Taking a positive, upbeat pro-life message to every corner of our city through media efforts, church presentations, petition drives, and public visibility
