What: 40 Days for Life Campaign for the end of abortion

Where: In front of the Kensington Clinic (Kick-off party at 2414 6th Ave NW)


The Campaign is a worldwide vigil for the end of abortion and takes place in front of the Kensington Clinic, where abortions are performed in Calgary. It starts this Wednesday (Ash Wednesday) and continues throughout Lent. The prayer vigil will be held every day of the campaign from 8 am until 8 pm.

There is a nifty Calendar where you can sign up Or call 403-467-6961

Many people do come without signing up. That is good, but if you sign up then we can better ensure 100% coverage of the time.

Check out the Facebook Page for more info.


The party will take place on Sunday, March 13 from 4-6 pm at 2414 6th Ave NW.

We will be having an Apologetics presentation to learn about the pro-life view and how to defend it, talking about the campaign and eating delicious food. Come out to meet other campaign participants and the organizing team and to celebrate the beginning of the spring 40 Days for Life Campaign! 

**You are welcome to invite people to attend but please limit this to people in Calgary who would be potentially interested in participating in the campaign and not those who are not yet convicted about the pro-life position and would not be interested in taking part in this prayer vigil.
