An Ecumenical Prayer Service will be held
at the Cathedral of
the Immaculate Conception
on Thursday, July 24th at 7:00 p.m.
All are welcome!
It will be prayer on
behalf of our city
at this time of
fiscal crisis and
for a just resolution
of the dispute
with fire and police
personnel, other city workers, and retirees. They have been
invited, as well as elected city officials, to join in this prayer service.
This prayer service
will be patterned after the one at which
Pope Francis presided
on Pentecost Sunday, this past June 8th, for peace within the
Pope Francis invited
Israeli President Shimon Peres and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas,
and they came to join
with him in prayer.
