40 Days for Life 2021 (10th Anniversary)
Start planning today on how you can participate in 2021!
Closing Mass for the 2020 40 Days for Life Mississauga prayer vigil and campaign was held Sunday, Nov. 1st at St. Catherine of Siena Church in Mississauga celebrated by Fr. Walter Tonelotto. Jolanta Galazka, President of Right to Life Mississauga & Area and Chair of 40 Days for Life Mississauga took the opportunity to thank all of you who participated in the 2020 campaign.
“Dear Brothers and sisters in Christ,
Today is the official end of this year’s 40 Days for Life campaign. Today we offer our gratitude to our Lord Jesus Christ, for with Him all things are possible. And to our patroness, Our Lady of Guadeloupe, “ the one who crushes the serpent”, for teaching us to embrace Life. Thank you to Fr. Walter and St Catherine of Siena parish for your continued kindness and support, and to all pastors and parishes who participated this year.
My personal gratitude to my fellow team members at Right to Life Mississauga & Area (Mississauga & Brampton) Right to Life, who with love gave it their all, to bring this campaign once more to you. Thank you to ALL the dedicated supporters who have stood at the vigil site and prayed for the end of abortion in Canada. Despite the impacts of Covid-19 we had a pretty good turn out this year. On some days the vigil was attended by upwards of 30-40 people in a given hour; a great show of support for all victims of abortion.
The 40 Days for Life 2020 campaign wraps up with an incredible 473 confirmed reports of babies saved from abortion. The number is not complete as reports are still coming in. Be encouraged by this news! Our prayers are being heard. We finish this race in faith. We end the vigil, but not our efforts. 2021 will be the 10th anniversary of the campaign and we plan to mobilize even more people to participate.
In the dark times we are facing we must stand up for what is good and right. Of all the things that could change during this pandemic, how we view life`s inherent value should be first and foremost.
Help us to spread the message of Life and may the God of Life bless you!”
