40 Days for Life, an international pro-life movement, will hold a March 6 vigil at the Philadelphia Women’s Center to pray for an end to abortion.
The vigil will begin at 8 a.m. as part of the organization’s annual 40-day campaign that includes prayer, fasting and peaceful community outreach. The campaign, designed to coincide with Lent, is inspired by the biblical 40-day periods during which God transformed individuals, such as Noah and Moses, as well as the disciples after Christ’s resurrection.
The Philadelphia Women’s Center is located at 777 Appletree Street in Philadelphia. For more information about the vigil, visit https://40daysforlife.com/local-campaigns/philadelphia-appletree/.
Regular hours for the vigils throughout the area are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturdays.

Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
