Friday, September 9, 2016
The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops has called for a Day of Prayer for Peace in Our Communities on September 9, 2016. The Diocese of San Angelo is pleased to participate in the National Day of Prayer in the following ways:
A Diocesan Mass on Friday, September 9, the Feast of St. Peter Claver
A Mass for Peace will be celebrated at 12:10 PM in Sacred Heart Cathedral. Bishop Michael J. Sis will celebrate the Mass. All are welcome to gather in solidarity and pray for peace in our communities.
Prayer in Parishes
We know that most people won't be able to attend the Mass in San Angelo. In addition, some parishes may want to recognize this Day of Prayer for Peace in Our Communities with their own Masses or other prayer services for the day.
Rosary for Peace in Our Communities
Local parishes and missions are encouraged to offer the opportunity to gather and pray a Rosary for Peace on Friday, September 9.
Ringing Local Church Bells at 12:00 Noon
Churches around the diocese are encouraged to ring the bells at 12:00 Noon on Friday, September 9, to commemorate the National Day of Prayer for Peace in Our Communities.
