Day of Prayer for Peace - join us on Dec. 6

Peace in the world begins with each of us. In the Advent season of awakening leading us to Christmas, please join me at St. Paul's as we set aside a few hours on Saturday Dec. 6 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. to pray for peace in our world, in our community, in our homes and in our lives.

We will begin with Morning Prayer in the Chapel, and then at regular intervals over the next few hours, we will offer prayers for peace from many faith traditions besides our own. Rooms at St. Paul’s will be set aside for writing your own prayers for peace, or creating an art project, or for quiet conversation. The chapel and church sanctuaries will be reserved for quiet meditation and prayer. We will also have a table with information about organizations working for peace and reconciliation in our community and the world.

 Individuals of all ages and families are invited to join us for the entire day or as many hours as you are able throughout the day. Drop-ins welcome.
