National Day of Prayer for Peace

As we are all aware, our society is increasingly divided and polarized. This past summer, social tensions led to incidents of violence that resulted in the targeting of law enforcement officials. The racial divisions in our society also came under increased scrutiny.

In response to these incidents that have exacerbated our societal divisions, Archbishop Joseph Kurtz, President of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, has on behalf of the Bishops of the United States called for a National Day of Prayer for Peace in our Communities.

Archbishop Kurtz asked that we join in that prayer intention on Friday, September 9. However, in view of the funeral of our beloved Bishop Thomas Doran scheduled for that day, I ask that we join in that National Day of Prayer over the weekend of September 17-18.
