Forty Days for Life


The picture below shows the premises of Unity Health at Wenlock Terrace in York.  Is is a clinic where abortions are carried out, although I understand that that none are taking place there at the present due to difficulties caused by the COVID pandemic. 

For a period of 40 days, people, usually in groups of two or three, are gathering outside the clinic to pray for those considering abortions. Usually, the group will stay for an hour and recite the Rosary and other prayers.

A roster has been worked out, with most people attending for one hour per week.  Some attend more frequently.  Currently, there are not enough people to pray outside the clinic throughout each day, although there is a presence for some time every morning and afternoon.

Anyone able to put in a shift is invited to contact Sabastian at
