On Tuesday June 10th St. Anna’s hosted about 60 supporters of the Inter Faith Peace Initiative funded in part by the Isaiah Institute. The goal of the group, which represents at least 40 churches, is to intervene in cycles of violence using parish programs throughout the city. This group has been meeting for almost one year. St. Anna’s is a member church of the Initiative. The group represents Christian, Muslim, and Jewish congregations. One of the fundamental aspects of the group is community worship. Ours was wonderful we expect the next to be just as wonderful. The schedule is as follows:
- 8/12 Mary Queen of Vietnam Catholic Church, 5069 Willowbrook Dr. NOLA 70117
- 9/9 St. David Catholic Church, 5617 St. Claude Ave. NOLA 70117
- 10/14 First Street Peck Wesley United Methodist, 2309 Dryades St. NOLA 70113
Members of St. Anna’s Church are encouraged to attend these prayer services. If you intend to join us please let Fr. Terry know so that he may advise the Inter Faith Council of intended attendance.
