Chester County 40 Days

The Walk for Life will also serve as the opening for our Chester County 40 Days campaign.

In conjunction with campaigns in 715 cities in 44 nations, Chester County will begin their 21st campaign at 8 am on September 27th.  Vigils will continue from 8 am to 8 pm every day until the closing ceremony at 2:30 pm on Sunday, November 5th.  The vigils will be in front of Planned Parenthood at 8 S. Wayne Street in West Chester.     

We thank all those who have participated in our past campaigns and hope that your participation will continue so that we can keep offering our help and our prayers to the desperate mothers entering Planned Parenthood.

On August 6th 1996 Planned Parenthood in West Chester joined in the killing of unborn children in America. Over 21,000 children have been added from WC to the nearly 60 million children that have been lost. To remind the community of their part in this tragedy, we will again walk in silent prayer behind a banner explaining our actions. Please, come and help carry a cross.

We will conclude with a light luncheon at the Knights of Columbus Hall, 110 W. Market St., West Chester.

Because all of us have families to interact with and share our pearls of wisdom, CCWS will share a short presentation, Sex Risk Avoidance. It is an evidence based abstinence curriculum to be introduced to 6th graders and up. Education makes us more comfortable in sharing our beliefs when the opportunity arises.
