An Interfaith Prayer Service for Peace in the Middle East will be held in the Chapel of Grace on Friday, June 22, at 7:30 PM. The Rev. Joseph L. Muth, Jr., will offer some reflections on his most recent trip to Israel, from which he returned June 5. Fr. Muth is pastor of St. Matthew Church, a faith community made up of people from over 40 different countries. Under his leadership, St. Matthew’s parishioners envisioned and founded the Immigration Outreach Service Center to serve immigrants regardless of immigration status, ethnicity or religious affiliation. He has traveled to Kenya, Zambia, Zimbabwe and Rwanda as well as Israel.
Take this opportunity to set aside one hour to pray with others for peace, justice and reconciliation everywhere, especially in the Holy Land and the Holy City of Jerusalem, sacred to Jews, Christians and Muslims alike.
Participants will have the opportunity to join Fr. Muth for conversation and light refreshments following the service.
