YOU can help save lives!- Come and pray to end abortion

From February 13 - March 24

40 Days for Life is a focused pro-life effort that consists of:

  • 40 days of peaceful vigil outside abortion clinic at
    bpas clinic
    Elgin House
    106-107 St Mary's Street
    CF10 1DX

We are praying that, with God's help, this groundbreaking effort will mark the beginning of the end of abortion in our city in Cardiff. There is a need for all to support on a daily basis but a need for men to support on the weekends is required due to rowdy and challenging city centre mobs. Currently there is a need supporters to sign up for 40 days of commitment on this link. So sign up now online for an hours vigil outside the abortion clinic. 

Be prepared for the weather by wrapping up yourself warm and bring your own camping chairs to sit and a rosary to pray.
