St Alphonsus Liguori - Embrace Life Ministry
The Saint Alphonsus Liguori Embrace Life Ministry supports the Indianapolis 40 Days for Life Campaign beginning on Wednesday, September 22nd and ending on Sunday, October 31st. But what is 40 Days for Life?
40 Days for Life is a community-based campaign that takes a determined, peaceful approach to showing local communities the consequences of abortion in their own neighborhoods, for their own friends and families. It puts into action a desire to cooperate with God in the carrying out of His plan for the end of abortion. It draws attention to the evil of abortion through the use of a three-point program:
- Prayer and fasting
- Constant vigil
- Community outreach
The 40-day campaign tracks Biblical history, where God used 40-day periods to transform individuals, communities and the entire world. From Noah in the flood to Moses on the mountain to the disciples after Christ's resurrection, it is clear that God sees the transformative value of His people accepting and meeting a 40-day challenge.
The Embrace Life Ministry stands in prayer for two hours on Sunday each week; from 2:00 to 3:00 PM and 3:00 to 4:00 PM. The local vigil is held from 7:00 AM to 7:00 PM at Planned Parenthood on Georgetown Road at 86th Street. For details about the campaign go to 40daysforlife.com/indianapolis.
