Plan to participate in 40 Days For Life during Lent.

February 13, 2018 1:05 pm

From February 14th through March 25th, the Lenten 40 Days for Life Campaign—40 days of peaceful prayer and fasting for an end to abortion—will occur outside abortion mills throughout the United States and the world. Because the nearest high volume abortion mill is located in Falls Church, 40 Days for Life is again asking St. Veronica’s parishioners to expand our efforts. Specifically, we are asking parishioners to commit to offering intercessory prayers for an hour each weekday before the Blessed Sacrament to pray to end abortion and for families harmed by abortion. In addition, you are invited to join Steven Grist each Saturday morning during 40 Days from 9:00 am-noon in a peaceful prayer vigil outside the mill on 900 S. Washington Street in Falls Church.

To sign up to pray for an hour during 40 Days, please call Steven Grist: 703-973-6528 or email at or go to
