Immigration Prayer Service

Sisters in ChapelThe Ursuline Sisters of Mount Saint Joseph are hosting a time of public prayer regarding immigration reform at 6:30 p.m. Oct. 3 at the Motherhouse Chapel in Maple Mount.

“Prayer for Reform,” leading to compassionate and comprehensive immigration legislation, will feature a public prayer service with music and opportunities for participation from those who attend. All are welcome.

The Intercommunity Justice and Peace Center in Cincinnati is asking religious communities that are members of the Leadership Conference of Women Religious to host a public prayer service between Sept. 9 and Oct. 18, the dates LCWR has called for prayer and fasting for humane reform.

The prayer service by the Ursuline Sisters also supports the effort of the Most. Rev. William Medley, bishop of the Diocese of Owensboro, to urge Congress to find just immigration reform.

The Ursuline Sisters Motherhouse is at 8001 Cummings Road in Maple Mount, about 12 miles west of Owensboro off Kentucky 56. No registration is necessary.
