Launching 40 Days For Life In Moncton

Yes, it's happening! Moncton is joining over 240 cities in the US, Canada, Europe and Australia in a 40-day prayer for life. It wasn't easy to organize such an event in a small city like Moncton, but with the help of devoted volunteers from all across the province, we made it. Today was the launching ceremony.

We started with a gathering at St. Patric's family Centre. Soon we ran out of chairs - and of space. (Luckily, the room could be expanded.) Then, after a few short speeches and a prayer, we marched by the candlelight to the vigil site, where another prayer was said and a few songs were sung...

Tomorrow is the first day. Our vigil won't be 24/7, as it is in larger cities (including Ottawa,) but we'll make sure that it keeps going on for at least 12 hours a day, from 7am to 7pm, for the entire 40 days.
