Friday September 20: Beaverton 40 Days for Life Vigil.
6:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m. at Planned Parenthood, SW 1st and Betts, Beaverton.
With Vicar General, Father Peter Smith
The 40 Days for Life campaign is the largest and longest coordinated pro-life mobilization. It is a focused respect-life effort that consists of 40 days of prayer and fasting, and 40 days of peaceful vigils.
Why You Want to Attend: From the first moment of his existence, a human being must be recognized as having the rights of a person-among which is the inviolable right of every innocent being to life... Direct abortion, that is to say, abortion willed either as an end or a means, is gravely contrary to the moral law. Catechism of the Catholic Church 2270, 2271, 2272

Opening Prayer Vigil of 40 Days for Life:
 FRIDAY, SEPT. 27th, 6:30 pm with Archbishop Sample

We're excited to announce that Archbishop Alexander Sample will lead us in prayer, and Dr. Arthur Henry (40 DFL participant) and Students for Life Rebekah Barnes will also be speaking.
This prayer vigil / opening event will be at the Planned Parenthood at 3231 SE 50th (and SE Franklin St, 2 blocks N. of Powell)

In just one week 40 Days for Life begins!  Our 40 day vigil at Planned Parenthood begins at 7:30 am on Wednesday, September 25.
Right now we have a few people signed up for that first Wednesday, and none on Thursday, Sept 26th.
If you want to be a part of this most visible aspect of our campaign, you can sign up right now.
Here's how:
2.  Click on "Vigil Schedule" in the second paragraph.
3.  Complete the "New User Sign Up" section.  If you are already registered, just sign in as "Already registered." If you forgot your password, just get a new one.
4.  Go to the vigil schedule and pick a time to come and pray.  If you do not want to come alone, bring a friend or sign up for a slot that is yellow or green - that means at least one other person is already signed up to be there.
