Prayer Vigil for Peace

Posted by Dana Hinton

SCNs Betty Blandford, Lisa Polega, Angela Hicks, and Sharon Gray attended the Prayer Vigil for Peace at Jewish Community Center in Louisville.

Sister Sharon said, “It was a very moving experience. There was a large crowd, mainly Jewish, but certainly many others in support. The Louisville Mayor attended, and the Archbishop was the only cleric to speak and offer a prayer who was not Jewish. The stories told were heart-wrenching. Many have families in Israel, and some have lived in Israel. It was a privileged and sacred moment to be there and to pray with them. And following this terrorism, innocent people in both Israel and Gaza are suffering. May we all pray for peace.”
