Trumbull St. Catherine K of C Recounts Prayer Vigil

By George Meagher

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.

Yours is a noble cause, of defending the lives of the most innocent and vulnerable! Thank you for your dedication, and that of your family and others who donate time praying and standing up for LIFE. And thanks for writing about it here.

What a beautiful sight you all must have been! Thank you for your dedication to speak for those who cannot speak for themselves. Until we have respect for life at the earliest stage, we will not have respect for life at any stage.
