The next 40 Days for Life campaign will begin on September 27, and applications are being accepted through June 23 from potential campaign leaders. Coincidentally, here in New Hampshire, the leader of the most recent 40DFL campaign in Concord is inviting people to join her on June 17 in a morning of retreat and prayerful discernment.
Beth Gaby has arranged the retreat in Concord, calling it Seeds of Grace. It’s happening tomorrow, but she still welcomes inquiries for more information (firstname.lastname@example.org).
As an explicitly Christian ministry within the broad pro-life movement, 40DFL is founded on prayer. This retreat reflects that, with Mass and a rosary on the schedule as well as scripture study.
“Our goal…is to discern and map out a plan to grow a culture of Life in the greater Concord area.” Beth writes.
The retreat will be a time of calm, quiet, and reflection. No politics, no devices. I will not be live-tweeting the homily. (You’re welcome.)
Please, be with the participants in spirit and prayer on Saturday morning, even if you aren’t in attendance yourself.
