April 11th: 40 Days for Life
St. Clare’s is covering 40 Days for Life on Friday, April 11th, from 6:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. We would love for you to come join us for any amount of time.
What is 40 Days for Life?
40 Days for Life is a peaceful prayer vigil outside Planned Parenthood at 4600 Gulf Freeway. We pray for an end to abortion, for the children, women, and men that enter. The doctors, nurses, staff, and volunteers of Planned Parenthood as well. You can pray a rosary, a chaplet, or whatever prayer you would like. All are welcome, men, women, teens, and children. Last Lent we had a good number of people show up to pray and it was a great success.

What is Respect Life?
Learn more about the sacredness of human life and participate in events which help foster a deep commitment to defend and protect ALL human life—from the moment of conception to natural death.
Respect Life issues affect all of us, in one way or another. Abortion, abstinence, adoption, euthanasia, embryonic stem cell research, human cloning—these, and other issues, impact our society as a whole and either bring us closer to respecting the inherent dignity of every human person, or else they bring us further away. Which way will we choose.
