Join Our 40 Days for Life Closing Prayer Vigil April 9!

TOLEDO, OH—Join the pro-life community of Northwest Ohio for the 40 Days for Life Campaign hosted by Catholic Charities Diocese of Toledo's Respect Life Ministry. This year's Spring Campaign concludes on Sunday, April 10, 2022. The Closing Prayer Vigil will be held at 2 p.m. on Saturday, April 9, 2022.

Participants gather to pray on the public right-of-way outside of Toledo Women's Center, formerly Capital Care Network, Toledo’s last remaining abortion clinic located at 1160 W. Sylvania Avenue.

"We pray and witness to bring the light of Christ Jesus to move the hearts and minds of all present to a deeper appreciation of the dignity of human life," says Peter Range, Executive Director of Ohio Right to Life. "Through the peaceful, loving witness of pro-life supporters at the abortion facility over the past six years, 43 mothers have chosen life for their pre-born children! Join us to fight for life! Join the movement, and help us end abortion in Northwest Ohio!"

Since the international 40 Days for Life Campaign began in 2007, over 1,000,000 volunteers in over 63 nations have stood in prayerful witness at abortion clinics to witness to the dignity of human life. Through these prayerful campaigns, over 19,198 lives have been saved, 221 abortion workers have quit their positions, and 112 abortion facilities have shut down!
