Cincinnati & Sharonville
February 23, 2017 (Cincinnati, OH) –
From Cincinnati campaign leader, Mary Clark…
FRIDAY PRAYER AT PLANNED PARENTHOOD -7:00 pm
Join us this Friday, February 24th at 7pm at Planned Parenthood for the last monthly interim prayer vigil hour before the 40 Days for Life campaign begins. All are welcome, especially if you are unable to sign up for prayer hours during the 12-hour daily vigils of the 40 Days for Life campaign. This is also a good introduction to public prayer witness.
As with all events, parking is on side streets (Wellington Place is closest) or at Holy Name Church, 2 blocks north on Auburn Avenue.
KICKOFF RALLY REMINDER – Sunday, February 26, 2017 – 3:00-4:00 pm
Join us as we kickoff our Fall campaign with a motivational hour of prayer, scripture, song and practical information about standing in peaceful public prayer witness for Life. The Rev. Matt Cushing, pastor of St. Anthony Parish, Taylor Mill, KY, will lead prayers. Our speaker is Laura Strietmann, of Ruah Woods which is a local, but nationally known organization which is continuing to expand its ministry geared toward restoring the family and renewing the culture by educating and training others to understand, embrace and share the message of St. John Paul II’s Theology of the Body.
Come pray for the success of this campaign. If you’ve never been a part of 40 Days for Life, please come to learn what is involved in this largest Spring campaign ever (40daysforlife.com ). Be motivated to be a witness for Life. Bring your calendars. There will be an opportunity to sign up on the spot for vigil prayer hours.
Even if you are already planning on taking part in the campaign whether on your church’s vigil day(s) or individually, PLEASE STILL COME. (Church coordinators – please forward this email to your parish vigil participants.) These events are one of the few opportunities for us all to spend an hour united in person and purpose with like-minded people before beginning to take part in the daily vigil prayer. Although you will most likely be praying throughout the campaign either alone or when one or two others are present, recalling our time together at the kickoff will strengthen your resolve whenever you make the trip to the sidewalk to witness to the sanctity of Life. Multitudes are praying with you around the world!
Materials and information will be available to equip you to introduce the campaign to your church, family and friends.
From Sharonville campaign leader, Leslie Marsh…

Hello Prayer Warriors!
Are you ready? 40 Days For Life begins on Ash Wednesday, March 1 and runs through Palm Sunday, April 9, 7am. to 7pm. The vigil schedule is open and ready for us to schedule our hours of prayer. Remember that new people signing up for hours don’t want to stand alone their first time praying outside an abortion mill. The more of us that schedule prayer hours online, the more choices new vigil participants have to schedule their first hour of prayer. Go to our website to learn more and sign up for hours: 40daysforlife.com/sharonville. Click on the “Vigil Guide” on our home page for parking and where we stand vigil.
As we prepare to pray, fast and stand peaceful witness for an end to abortion, please keep in mind prayer for a change of heart within all abortion workers and parents contemplating abortion and prayers for healing for all the men and women suffering from past abortions.

Saturday, March 4 – 9:15 am. Group Rosary For Life lead by St. Susanna Parish on Saturday morning at 9:15am.
Sunday, March 5 – 2:00 pm. Chaplet of Divine Mercy and the Litany of the Saints
