40 Days for Life

Friday, Mar 22, 2019 from 7:00 AM to 7:00 PM - Bilingual (English and Spanish)

Please visit for details

Our peaceful presence there makes a difference: We offer prayers, hope and life affirming choices!

40 Days for Life is a community-based campaign that takes a determined, peaceful approach to showing local communities the consequences of abortion in their own neighborhoods, for their own friends and families. It puts into action a desire to cooperate with God in the carrying out of His plan for the end of abortion. It draws attention to the evil of abortion through the use of a three-point program:

  • Prayer and fasting
  • Constant vigil
  • Community outreach

The 40-day campaign tracks Biblical history, where God used 40-day periods to transform individuals, communities … and the entire world. From Noah in the flood to Moses on the mountain to the disciples after Christ’s resurrection, it is clear that God sees the transformative value of His people accepting and meeting a 40-day challenge.  

We will stand across Eve's Medical Center, 8603 S. Dixie Hwy, Miami FL 33143 on the right of way on 68th Court.  Parking is available on rooftop of shopping center.   

Please visit for details of attending groups and churches. Join them or come on your own or with friends anytime between 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

St. John Bosco Clinic is sponsored by the Sisters of St. Joseph of St. Augustine, Florida. Established in 1992, we aim to be an enduring presence providing care as long as there are underserved children and adults without access to healthcare. 

The strength of a free clinic lies in its volunteer support. Volunteers help strengthen the safety-net that cares for our community. Those served at St. John Bosco Clinic have different life stories, faces and nationalities. They are the young, old, working poor and the unemployed, but they share one very similar need: the need for healthcare and difficulty meeting that need for themselves and their families. The St. John Bosco Clinic is a safety-net for these families.
