Day 41…Thanks to all who made our 40 Days for Life fall campaign a success!

The precious baby pictured here was just born last Thursday…and was saved from abortion when her mother arrived at Planned Parenthood last April for an abortion, but instead decided to accept help from our sidewalk advocates!  We are praising God for this beautiful life and wonder what plans God has in store for her!

We thank God for all of the wonderfully selfless, dedicated people who prayed, fasted and witnessed for life during these past 40 days! We know of 2 lives saved, but believe that God used us to save MANY more that we may never know about. He is faithful and good to those who love Him…and we DO LOVE HIM!!! Our next 40 days begins on February 26th. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and Christmas…and I will see you in February!

Enjoy these photos from our closing celebration:

It was wonderful to see Al back on the sidewalk, thanks to his beautiful daughter, Alicia for bringing him! Doesn’t she look like her mom?
Thank you Fr. Thomas More for coming all the way from St. Vincent’s in Greensburg to lead our prayer on the sidewalk!!!

Fr. Jason Charon, of Holy Trinity Ukrainian Catholic Church inspired us with encouraging stories of lives that seemed hopeless but that God used for amazing things!
Benson is only 18 years old but is on fire for pro-life work! He spoke about the exciting place we are at in the pro-life movement and about the very real possibility that we may see Roe overturned and the importance of the next election! He is one sharp young man! Thanks Benson!
Fr. Thomas More encouraged us with stories of saints and reminded us of the importance of our presence on the sidewalk!
Al was laughing at Emcee Joe’s antics…just like old times…only missing Sally! It just isn’t the same without her.

Al got a standing ovation when he spoke about his lifelong fight to save lives from abortion!
Al spoke about years of sidewalk advocacy…Picketing Magee Hospital, handing out leaflets at high schools, standing in front of PP three days a week for 30 years, Face the Truth…and more! He was presented with a scrapbook from our team, including photos and messages from the team.
Our scheduling ladies…Donna and Fran…what a great team!

    So beautiful to see people who have been faithful during these and other 40 Days vigils. How wonderful that Al was with you. What inspiration! What love! What dedication! Thank you to Al’s daughter, too.
    We need the reminder that it is always good to stop and pray, even if it’s not a 40 Days Day.
