Welcome Back To School at Holy Cross
Join Us Sunday at 12:45 PM to Pray for Peace

Pope Petitions Day of Fasting and Prayer for Peace

Dove_with_oliveAs you know, Pope Francis has asked for a worldwide day of prayer and fasting for peace, especially in Syria and the Middle East on Saturday, September 7th. 

Please fast and pray privately on this day of solidarity with our brothers and sisters all around the globe for the blessing of peace and amity among all earth's citizens.

On Sunday, though we cannot enjoin fasting on the day which celebrates the Lord's resurrection, please join us in a communal celebration of prayer for peace immediately following the 12 noon mass. (Those not attending the 12 noon mass can plan on arriving at approximately 12:45 PM) The USCCB and the Office of Worship of the Diocese of Trenton have kindly provided resources for the prayer service, which will consist of a prayer service and brief period of silent reflection before the Blessed Sacrament. 


 Join us on Sunday, September 8th at 12:45 PM - 1:15 PM for a prayer service

and reflection before the Blessed Sacrament.
