PLATTSBURGH — An event organizers call a, “peaceful, prayerful, effective,” 40 Days for Life campaign will kick off with a Sept. 24 rally.
“We truly hope that this fall’s 40 Days for Life campaign will mark the beginning of the end of abortion in Plattsburgh,” said Nancy Belzile, who coordinates the local 40 Days for Life effort. “The pro-life community will join together for our area’s 40 Days for Life kickoff event at Newman Center, SUNY Plattsburgh on Sept. 24, at 7 p.m.”
Plattsburgh is one of the many cities conducting simultaneous 40 Days for Life campaigns from Sept. 25 through Nov. 3.
“We start this effort by drawing members of the community together to share the vision of 40 Days for Life and to pray for God’s blessings on this effort. It is time to focus attention on the harm abortion has done to our city,” said Belzile.
Belzile said that as part of the effort, there will be prayer sessions planned near the Plattsburgh Panned Parenthood building.
“This rally will begin 40 days of prayer and fasting, with special attention to prayer in the public right-of-way outside the abortion facility at Planned Parenthood of the North Country, 66 Brinkerhoff Street, Plattsburgh, as well as various types of community outreach,” said Belzile.
All prayer vigil participants are asked to sign a statement of peace, pledging to conduct themselves in a Christ-like manner at all times.
