Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, public gathering permits have been revoked or not granted for our Jericho March, March 30 – April 5, 2020 and our Solemn Good Friday Vigil, April 10, 2020. This will be the first time in 37 years that our Good Friday Vigil will be cancelled.

Join us on Good Friday as we remember the unborn victims of abortion while meditating on the Passion of our Lord Jesus Christ. Pastors of various denominations lead us in Scripture and prayer every half hour. There is no protesting or signs, just solemn prayer for seven and a half hours.
Inspired by the movie Unplanned and motivated to “do something to stop abortion” because of anti-life legislation being passed in New York and other states, hundreds of new people joined in our Good Friday and Jericho March events this year, making them the largest ever.
Approximately 3800 people total attended our 36th annual Good Friday prayer vigil outside the Planned Parenthood abortion facility in St. Paul. Throughout the day, 14 pastors of various denominations, including Archbishop Bernard Hebda, Auxiliary Bishop Andrew Cozzens, and Bethlehem Baptist Pastor, Rev. Jason Meyer, gave profound meditations on the passion of Christ and led the large crowd in praying for the end of abortion. (See videos of all the pastors on our YouTube channel.) Four different groups led the crowd in singing hymns throughout the day.
Reverend Dr. John Piper was one of 15 speakers during our 2018 Good Friday prayer vigil. To hear all of the 2018 vigil speakers, visit our Youtube channel.
“I appreciated the opportunity to meditate on Our Lord’s Passion in the context of abortion and to unite in prayer with others whom I’ve never even met for our little brothers and sisters.”
“I am grateful for the opportunity to pray with so many other people to end abortion at PP. It is good to give public witness to our faith.”
“Prayerful, respectful presence. Many of the women and men who resort to abortion are wounded and our gentle example of Christ’s love is so powerful.”
“I feel closely united with Christ on Good Friday when I stand with Him against the evil atrocities that are taking place at Planned Parenthood. It’s a profound feeling to be united with so many other Christians on this solemn day.”
