Mass for Peace and Healing of Divisions, Tuesday, July 12, 6PM at St.Catherine of Sienna Catholic Church, Donaldsonville

Fr. Desmond Ohankwere of St. Catherine of Sienna Catholic Church and Fr. Paul Yi of Ascension/ St. Francis Churches plan to offer a mass for peace and healing of divisions
Tuesday, July 12, 6PM at St. Catherine of Sienna Catholic Church
421 St. Patrick Street, Donaldsonville, LA 70346

We invite people of faith in our area to pray for peace and healing of divisions. As people of faith, we turn to the Lord in challenging times, seeking not only his consolation and healing but also his wisdom and guidance. In the midst of anger, fear and frustration, we need to come together as God’s family to pray that God’s grace might unite all people of good will and bring light into the darkness of this difficult time. In its simplicity and familiarity, the Mass will allow us to ask the Lord not only to console families who have lost their loved ones, but also to heal the divisions in our community, to guide our public servants in their pursuit of the common good, and to satisfy the longings of those who thirst for justice and peace.
