Chester County, Pennsylvania's 20th 40 Days for Life Campaign Begins on March 1st

From Paulette Matthews, Coordinator
Chester County 40 Days for Life 

Because of your continual support, Chester County will be one of the 325 cities in 30 Countries that is participating in this Spring 2017 International 40 Days for Life Campaign. 12,668 babies have been saved since 2007.


Rachel Hayes (adoptive mom) & Dara Hayes (adopted daughter) were inspired by the fall 2016 40 Days for Life campaign to stand together every Tuesday (abortion day) throughout the year in front of their local Planned Parenthood in West Chester, PA. Dara is an international adoptee from 90s Communist China whose birth was most likely high risk to her birth mother who chose life. Dara would like others to see her as an example of how unique and worthwhile every human life is in spite of the difficult circumstances of their conception - every child has value and purpose.

Ash Wednesday


In support of the mothers, who regret their abortion and for all the babies who have lost their live through abortions, we will remember them in a candlelight prayer vigil. Also, we will be giving thanks that the tide is turning and we are returning back to the fundamentals that our nation was founded on.

Both St. Joseph and St. Patrick had dreams that they answered and changed the world. In honor of their feast days, Chris Cassidy from Sts. Peter and Paul Catholic Church will be leading the prayer service. The Patriot Rosary will be said and the Divine Mercy Chaplet and a few hymns shared. 

All men and their families are invited to again make a visible stand for life.


Children and teens are invited to present the Stations of the Cross to the West Chester Community passing by. It is most effective when the simple readings are read by 15 youths. Without Jesus suffering there would be no healing for the sinners and no Easter Sunday. Bring you children to participate in this service.

Opening prayers of reflection will be lead by Thomas Ackerman from Chicester Baptist Church.

40 Days for Life is a community-based campaign that takes a determined, peaceful approach to showing local communities the consequences of abortion in their own neighborhoods, for their own friends and families. It puts into action a desire to cooperate with God in the carrying out of His plan for the end of abortion. Use this link for more information or to find a campaign in your area.
