The semi-annual 40 Days for Life vigil in the Triangle begins Wednesday, February 22, 2012, and will continue through April 1. The pro-life event is an international ecumenical effort, whose members and partners participate in peaceful witness outside abortion clinics.

The vigil, which takes place from 7:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m., is focused on prayer and fasting, peaceful vigil and community outreach. This year’s vigil will be at Planned Parenthood, 1765 Dobbins Drive, Chapel Hill, NC.

The Most Reverend Michael F. Burbidge will join with others Thursday, February 23 at 8:00 a.m. for the recitation of the Rosary. Further information, including signing up for a specific prayer time during the 40 days, is available at www.40daysforlife.com/chapelhill. There you will also find daily prayer intentions and pregnancy resources.
