40 Days for Life – St. Catherine of Siena Knights of Columbus - Trumbull

This past Sunday, the St. Catherine of Siena Knights of Columbus in Trumbull adopted a Day of Prayer at the Summit abortion clinic in Bridgeport as part of the national 40 Days For Life commitment.  The weather was cold and the site was windy.  I was the local coordinator for the Knights.  Illness and rescheduled events due to the recent snow storms caused some volunteers to cancel, but others pitched in.   At various parts of the day, my wife and three adult sons prayed for two hours at the vigil.  A daughter and two granddaughters also prayed for an hour.  Another husband, wife, daughter team prayed for two hours.  An older woman, who recently faced serious health issues, prayed for an hour with her adult son.  I am reminded that the love and support of family is a blessing that those who choose life enjoy.  This is not meant to diminish the contribution of individuals who prayed at the site, whose witness also rebounds to the infinite Glory of God.
