Save the Date: Tuesday, September 29 at the Cathedral in Richmond, an ecumenical prayer service for all those suffering for their faith. All are invited. The Diocese writes:
Recently, many people have been persecuted for their faith in various parts of the world. The Catholic Diocese of Richmond’s Office of Social Ministries in partnership with Richmond’s Coptic Orthodox church decided to come together and organize an ecumenical prayer service to stand in solidarity for all those who are suffering for their faith. We would like to invite you to join us on Tuesday September 29th, 2015 at the Cathedral of Sacred Heart in Richmond Virginia at 7 p.m with a light reception to follow. With this event being the first of its kind, many Christian communities have responded and will be joining us.
Where God Weeps is a good place to read more about the reality of the suffering and persecuted Church.
