Fargo Diocese Bishop Aquila encourages priests, faithful to pray outside abortion facility

Samuel J. Aquila, bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Fargo

In a late August letter, Fargo Bishop Samuel Aquila asked the priests of the Catholic Diocese of Fargo to schedule at least one hour of prayer outside North Dakota’s only abortion facility during the upcoming 40 Days for Life North Dakota campaign. He also encouraged parishioners to do the same.

The 40-day campaign of prayer, fasting, community outreach and peaceful vigil on the sidewalk outside the Red River Women’s Clinic in Fargo begins Sept. 22.

Bishop Aquila also announced that he will lead the annual Walk with Christ for Life procession to the clinic on Sept. 26 and that he has scheduled an Oct. 28 hour of personal prayer outside the facility.
