Rooted in Faith

A CALL TO EVENING PRAYER

A Call to Evening Prayer 

(Virtually join us at 8:30 pm if you can)

Pope Francis’ reminder of the power of prayer and his invitation to pray with him at specific times inspired the creation of A Call to Evening Prayer. Not only is this a way of being together in a time of crisis, it revives a means of prayer that was part of our history during WWII. Praying in unison creates a powerful spirit of connection with God. 

All are invited to join via the website throughout this crisis.  All you need is a quiet space, a candle and your device with this website page open. We are in this together in faith and through prayer stand in solidarity with our world.

 Blessings,     Ellen Heitman          Pastoral Associate SJOA
