For immediate release
Evening of Prayer for Peace in our Nation
The parish of the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception will hold an Evening of Prayer for Peace in our Nation on Tuesday, July 12.
The Cathedral will be open for private prayer and meditation from 5 p.m. until 8 p.m. At 7 p.m. Evening Prayer will be celebrated. The Cathedral is located at 125 Eagle Street, Albany, at the foot of the South Mall.
In view of the increased violence on the streets of our nation as witnessed by recent events involving the killing of both black citizens and police officers, and also the increased random violence that occurs on the streets of all major cities on a daily basis, it is imperative that we turn to the power of prayer to begin to bring together all those who seek to create peace in the life of our cities and throughout the nation.
All are welcome to participate in the Evening Prayer service.
