Nottingham 40 Days For Life 2021

Published 6th of February 2021

"40 Days for Life is a peaceful and prayerful way to work for an end to abortion. In Nottingham Diocese, with the support of Bishop Patrick, we have prayed outside the abortion facility at the QMC during Lent for several years. Routine abortions no longer take place there so last year we prayed at the Stapleford Care Centre, which contains a BPAS abortion clinic, until the Covid lockdown meant that we could no longer pray outside the clinic. We completed the prayer campaign by praying at home.

"During Lent from 17th February to 28th March, people in our Diocese are invited to pray and fast for an end to abortion. We planned to return to Stapleford but are currently prevented from doing so by lockdown (although the abortion clinic continues to see women). So, we plan to start our 2021 campaign online.

"You are invited to peacefully pray for an hour or more during a 40-day vigil running for 12 hours daily during Lent. Please sign up now to pray with us at, or you can contact us at Bishop Patrick will celebrate Mass for us on Thursday 11th February at the Cathedral at 7.00pm - if you live near Nottingham (and are not in a high-risk category) please do come. You can also follow the Mass online through the cathedral website."
