40 Days for Life

The St. John Vianney community has joined Pro-Life Warriors across town on a peaceful Prayer Campaign in front of the largest abortion facility in the Western Hemisphere, right here in Houston. We know hearts are changed and lives are saved when people are present in prayer!

During the 40 Days for Life, St. John Vianney Respect Life members will pray the Rosary at Planned Parenthood every Thursday, ending on March 26th.  To carpool, meet in the St. John Vianney north parking lot by the Parish Office after the 9am Mass.

Want to end abortion? If you do, the first thing you must do is pray. Prayer is at the center of 40 Days for Life. During each campaign, we are calling on people of faith across the nation and around the world to fall on their knees before the Lord, asking Him to hear our plea and heal our land. Pray outside an abortion facility. Pray at church. Pray at work. Pray in the car. Pray at home with your family.

Campaign Start Date: Wednesday February 18, 2015
End Date: Monday, March 29, 2015


May the King of the Universe, who entered this world as a helpless infant, give us the humility to be healed.

My power is made perfect in weakness. – 2 Corinthians 12:9

Lord, during these forty days, we ask that with each day of this sacred vigil, everything in us that separates us from your perfect will would be pruned from our hearts and souls.
In this blessed freedom may we experience a powerful anointing of your Holy Spirit. Filled with confidence and trust may we proclaim with the mother of Jesus, “Let it be done to me, according to your Word.”
