“Popular society pressures us to remain silent about the rights of unborn children, the institution of marriage, the dignity of the elderly, the immigrant, the poor and other persons. But of course, followers of Christ cannot and we will not.
With a joyful heart and with lively faith, we will live and serve and celebrate the Gospel of Life.”
Bishop Thomas Olmsted
40 Days for Life is a focused pro-life campaign with a vision to access God’s power through prayer, fasting, and peaceful vigil to end abortion.
The mission of the campaign is to bring together the Body of Christ in a spirit of unity during a focused 40 day campaign of prayer, fasting, and peaceful activism, with the purpose of repentance, to seek God’s favor to turn hearts and minds from a culture of death to a culture of life, thus bringing an end to abortion.
We welcome all to come pray on the sidewalk in front of the Planned Parenthood located at 1250 E Apache Blvd, Tempe, AZ 85281 anytime between 6am and 6pm.

40 Days for Life Prayer
We ask for the intercession of the Holiest of Mothers, Your Mother, the Blessed Virgin Mary, under the title of our Lady of Guadalupe, Patroness of the Unborn, and of Your first protector, St. Joseph, that they will join their prayers with ours to bring an end to abortion. Amen.
Natural Family Planning
Natural family planning is compatible for use by all women during regular or irregular cycles, breast feeding, post-partum, pre-menopause or after discontinuing contraceptives. It has up to 99% effectiveness rate if properly learned and used according to instructions for avoiding or delaying pregnancy. It also assists couples trying to achieve pregnancy, has no medical side effects, and is inexpensive.
There are no recurring costs after initial instruction other than charts, stamps, thermometers.
NFP is designed to be a cooperative method of family planning between husband and wife as they learn to understand and responsibly use their combined fertility potential. It is morally acceptable as it recognizes the inseparable elements of the unitive and pro-creative purposes of the marital embrace.
