Let There Be Peace on Earth

Dec 27th, 2015

Caring for God’s Creation & the Poor: “Yes, Christ is our peace, and through him we implore peace for all the world.” ~Pope Francis 

On December 9 an interfaith prayer vigil, The National Vigil to #EndGunViolence, was held at Lutheran Church of the Redeemer in St. Paul. This was the state of Minnesota’s official Newtown remembrance vigil and also to remember the more than 90,000 Americans killed by gun violence since the Sandy Hook School massacre in 2012.

Even if we don’t always agree on how to get there, as faithful Catholics we are called to open our minds and hearts and to pray for peace: www.newtownfoundation.org.
