During this Respect for Life Month, Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity Sister Sue Ann Hall and Sister Delores Voigt share on 40 days for Life from Our Lady of Guadalupe Convent, St. Louis, Missouri.
Forty Days for Life (to pray and sacrifice for an end to abortion and the closing of abortion clinics) began on Wednesday, September 23 and ends on Sunday November 1.
In St. Louis, the Coalition for Life arranges for parishes to have two or more volunteers every hour from seven in the morning until seven in the evening. Those who come to pray outside Planned Parenthood are welcome to come to Our Lady of Guadalupe Convent to pray in our chapel, use the restroom or enjoy a drink or snack in our hospitality room. Those entering the convent need to wear a mask, socially distance, and have their temperature taken at the door this year. (2019 photo)
The workers and clients at Planned Parenthood in St. Louis have decreased. Now they only use one parking lot compare to two parking lots they used the first two years our Sisters were at Our Lady of Guadalupe Convent.
The Coalition for Life has arranged for people to pray at the secretly built abortion clinic in Fairview, Heights, Illinois. The Missouri Coalition leaders have worked hard to train sidewalk counselors at Fairview, Heights, IL. Some of the Missouri women are traveling about a half hour across the Mississippi River to the abortion clinic in Fairview Heights, Illinois. The abortion restrictions are much more lenient or nonexistent in Illinois.
Please join us in prayer so that every child may have life and celebrate their birthday.
