Life is precious. That was the foundation May 8 for the nearly one-hour prayer service at St. Francis Xavier Cathedral to start the 40 Days for Life Prayer Vigil that seeks an end to abortion.

The afternoon prayer service was followed by a silent 10-block march to the OB/GYN & Associates clinic in the Medical Arts Building, 704 S. Webster Ave., Green Bay, where the 40-day vigil will continue until June 18.

Bp. David Zubik told the 50-70 people at the service that the main purpose of the vigil is to find a peaceful way to end abortion and strengthen the respect for human life.

"The peace-filled intent of this observance over the course of 40 days is a reminder of the absolute sacredness of human life," Bp. Zubik said. Full story ...
