ATTLEBORO — “On September 27, the highly successful 40 Days for Life campaign returns to Attleboro with 40 days of prayer and fasting, peaceful vigil and community outreach,” said Ron Larose, who is coordinating the local campaign. “We pray that these efforts will help mark the beginning of the end of abortion in Attleboro. We know 40 Days for Life has made a difference here. Our volunteers have made extraordinary sacrifices to expose the abortion industry and to protect children and their mothers from abortion.” 

The following is a list of just a few of the positive results of previous Attleboro campaigns.

— 18 babies saved from abortion;

­— More than 30 churches and other faith-based organizations participate;

— More than 300 volunteers contributing 15,000 hours of service to the community.

The campaign will feature a peaceful 40-day prayer vigil in the public right-of-way outside Four Women Clinic at 150 Emory Street in Attleboro. All prayer vigil participants are asked to sign a statement of peace, pledging to conduct themselves in a Christ-like manner at all times.

“We stand united for life in our small corner of the vineyard at the last remaining surgical abortion clinic in the entire southeast region of Massachusetts to protect mothers and babies from this terrible affliction in our land,” said Larose. 

An opening Prayer Service and Mass will be held Saturday, September 30. The Friars of the Immaculate will be present to lead in prayer and celebrate Mass in Angel Park from 9 to 11 a.m. The event will include recitation of the Rosary, Mass, Confession, Eucharistic procession around the park and conclude with Benediction. 

The website is up and running and includes a vigil calendar where one can sign up for a specific hour during the campaign. The website includes the campaign flyers and additional information from the National campaign. 

“Dr. Haywood Robinson, MD, Director of Medical Affairs and Education for the national 40 Days for Life campaign will be joining for a mid-campaign prayer service at Angell Park,” Larose told The Anchor.  “We invite all of our regular campaign volunteers to join us in prayer and have an opportunity to speak with one of the national campaign leadership team.  This will be the third visit to our campaign from national headquarters.”
