DAY OF PRAYER AND FASTING FOR RACIAL RECONCILIATION - Feast of St. Peter Claver, 9/9/2020
Holy Family Parishioners and friends,
Bishop David A. Zubik is asking all people of faith in Southwestern Pennsylvania to pray and fast for racial
reconciliation on Wednesday, September 9, the memorial day of St. Peter Claver, patron of interracial justice. “In solidarity with all people who suffer from discrimination and violence due to their race, I join my brother bishops nationwide in asking everyone to pray and work for racial justice and reconciliation,” Bishop Zubik said.
See the attached letter and press release. Locally, we will be using some of the prayer materials for our Masses on Wednesday at 6:30 PM at St. Irenaeus and 9 AM at St. John the Baptist (the latter being livestreamed).
