If you are interested in being a part of 40 Days for Life, then we’d like to hear from you! Here’s how you can help:

  • Sign up to pray during the vigil at your local 40 Days for Life vigil site;
  • Invite and encourage friends, family members, and parishioners/your church community to participate;
  • Distribute flyers;
  • Speak at your church, parish or faith-based group about 40 Days for Life and invite participation;
  • Encourage your church or group to adopt a day during the vigil and be responsible for filling the hours;
  • Learn how to talk to mothers, fathers, abortion facility staff and the public in truth and love;
  • Provide feedback on your past experience of 40 Days for Life.
Time spent outside the abortion facility can be for as little or as long as you are able to sacrifice.  We also invite those who are house-bound or outside the areas of Auckland and Wellington to pray in solidarity with the other faithful who are praying at the the vigil sites.
40 Days for Life is open to all people of faith.  We encourage all Christian Churches, youth groups, parishes and organisations to sign up for one or two hours at a time, or commit to filling the hours for a half a day or even a full day!
