U.S. Catholic bishops set Day of Prayer for Peace on September 9

On September 9, the feast of St. Peter Claver, the U.S. Catholic bishops are urging dioceses, parishes, and other faith communities to participate in a Day of Prayer for Peace in Our Communities. This day complements the ongoing work of a special task force, led by Archbishop Gregory, to help bishops and communities engage the challenging problems connected with race relations.


The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops task force will continue its work beyond September 9, and urges all faith communities to discern involvement in longer term efforts to build peace and work for racial justice. The USCCB offers '5 Ways You Can Cultivate Peace and Work for Racial Justice' here:
