THE CHICAGO 40 DAYS FOR LIFE VIGIL SITE HAS BEEN BLESSED WITH AN INCREDIBLE VICTORY!
The Family Planning Associates abortion center, which was located at 4341 N. Milwaukee Ave. HAS CLOSED PERMANENTLY! This joyous event took place before the eyes of our Vision 2020 sidewalk counsel team, which counsels moms and dads seeking abortion year-round (in between hosting 40 Days for Life vigils). This closure occurred only a couple of weeks before the beginning of the 40 Days for Life spring season. Praise God!
If you are asking yourself....where do we go from here, then I want to thank you in advance. My wish is that everyone would ask themselves this question, which you are likely asking yourself right now. What else can I do to restore God's glorious plan for the human family, which the abortion industry works towards dismantling for profit? When enough people ask this question, abortion will absolutely be a thing of the past. God knows that until we ask this question of ourselves, his intervention would fall on deaf ears and empty hearts. Please, keep asking that question.
There is much that you can do at this moment. If you consider yourself a NAVY SEAL for LIFE, and would be willing to join our REVIVE 365 sidewalk counsel team, then I encourage you to contact me at my phone or email below to find out where Vision 2020 plans to move our operation to next in order to continue to close abortion centers in IL. One-by-one-by-one. If you'd like to prayerfully assemble for the current spring vigil, then I encourage to sign-up for another Chicago area vigil site, such as, Waukeegan, Downer's Grove, Aurora, or Flossmoor. What better time of the year, than the lead-up to Easter can there be to offer an hour of time praying in front of an abortion center, so that precious babies don't die alone. Your witness might be the one thing that inspires a mother to reevaluate her decision.
Please also consider coming out to the March 7th celebration Mass at Our Lady of Victory Catholic Church in Chicago (only one-quarter of a mile from the former 40 DFL Chicago site/ 4212 W. Agatite Ave. Chicago). The Mass will be celebrated at 10:30 AM and will include Bishops Bartosic and Manz from the Archdiocese of Chicago, and will be followed by a prayer gathering on the SAME SIDEWALK WHERE THE FORMER 40 DAYS FOR LIFE VIGIL WAS HELD (4341 N. Milwaukee Ave.). The prayer gathering will be at 12PM. Steve Karlen from 40 Days for Life will also be joining us for this joyous event. Please bring your family, as LIFE is always a family event.
We are currently planning a new Chicago sidewalk counsel effort as a part our REVIVE 365 Vision 2020 initiative. This effort will likely lead into a fall 2021 40 Days for Life vigil. More information will be coming soon on this event. You can stay up on all Vision 2020 inititiatives by visiting our website vision2020il.org or join our Facebook page at Vision 2020 Cook County/The Action Network. Please look for a message highlighting the closing celebration on March 7th in your email also. May God bless you abundantly for protecting His precious creations!
