40 Days for Life - Lent, 2018


Where: the Treatment Centre, QMC Campus.

When: Lent, 6.00 to 18.00 daily, one hour/two hour slots or more, the witness is voluntary.


Are you looking for a challenge during Lent, involving prayer and self-sacrifice? Are you saddened to see the harm done to babies and women through abortion? “40 Days for Life” is a Christian campaign group whose purpose is to save the lives of unborn children through prayer, fasting and community outreach. With the support of Pope Francis for this worldwide initiative, and the encouragement Bishop Patrick locally, we are running a campaign here in Nottingham during Lent 2018.

The aim of our prayers is simple: we are praying for an end to abortion. But we also offer support – moral and practical – to women who may be under pressure to have an abortion which they do not want, and which they may come to regret. OUR VIGIL IS PRAYERFUL, PEACEFUL AND, NON–JUDGEMENTAL. We are seeking volunteers to pray with us during Lent, between 6:00 am and 6:00 pm, on a rota basis, at the Treatment Centre on the QMC Campus, where many abortions in Nottinghamshire take place. Most people who come stay for either one or two hours at a time. Please sign up now to pray with us on our webpage: www.40daysforlife.com/local-campaigns/Nottingham or contact us at 40daysforlifenotts@gmail.com.
