Through November 1st, the Fall 40 Days for Life Campaign–40 days of peaceful prayer and fasting for an end to abortion–will occur outside abortion mills throughout 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 one hour each weekday before the Blessed Sacrament to pray for families harmed by abortion. Our hope is that for one hour each Monday-Friday during 40 Days, someone will be praying in an Adoration Chapel to end 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. Father Kleinmann will lead us in all four mysteries of the Holy Rosary on October 17th.
