The 40 Days For Life Prayer Vigil began on Sept 28 with an healthy attendance of over 20 people outside of the Jubilee of Mercy Door at Sacred Heart Cathedral.  There has been some opposition who have placed themselves on the corner of 3rd and Columbia and the RCMP have visited both groups to ensure the safety of all participants.    

This vigil is open to all faiths who wish to join in prayerful support of life from conception to natural death.  Varying city parishes have sponsored certain days of the week with participants, but everyone is welcome to join on whatever day they can.  Bring a lawn chair, if needed and dress warmly for the chillier fall weather.  The Cathedral is also open for those who cannot stand, but wish to join in prayer or to simply warm up.
