Since there won't be an official 40 Days for Life Campaign in Ottawa this Lent, the Helpers of God's Precious Infants (Ottawa-Gatineau would like to invite you to join us in a Lenten initiative.
Come and pray with us, between 8 am and 5 pm, at the abortuary (65 Bank St., Ottawa) on Friday March 25th,2011, the Feast of the Annunciation and also the International Day for the Unborn Child. We invite each parish and church group to provide a prayerful presence for one hour (or more) during that day.
This is an opportunity for a Lenten sacrifice that will help us grow closer to God by experiencing the mystery of His Cross. By denying ourselves comfort, we will better find out what Calvary is like.
Praying for the unborn in this public way will also help us to clearly realize Christ's personal love for each one of us, and know the joy of having responded to His call.
In doing this, we also learn to pray, offer penances, abandon the results of our labors to God, and recognize that it is God's power and love which will overcome the evil of abortion and soften the hearts of those who participate
We encourage all Christians to make a special effort on March 25th to come and pray for the unborn.
