All are welcome to the Vigil for Peace which will be from 4 to 5 pm Sunday, Sept. 21, at the Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help, 4047 Chapel Drive in New Franken ( map).
The service will include:

The event, sponsored by the Sisters of St. Francis of the Holy Cross, coincides with International Day of Peace.
We hold in our hearts these words from Pope Francis:
"May Mary, the Mother of Jesus, help us to understand and live every day the fraternity that springs up from the heart of her Son, so as to bring peace to each person on this our beloved earth."
