The Holy Father has made an urgent plea to all the people of the world to set aside tomorrow, Saturday, Sept. 7, as a day of prayer and fasting for a peaceful solution to the crisis in Syria. Here is his statement. Cardinal Dolan has added his own request to the family of the Archdiocese of New York.
If you are a director or coordinator of a parish religious education program that meets on Saturday, please invite those in your program and their families to offer their prayers as well.
For those of you who will be in midtown Manhattan tomorrow, Archbishop Francis Chullikatt, the Holy See’s ambassador to the United Nations, will offer a Mass at 5:30 pm at St. Patrick’s Cathedral. Please come and, by all means, invite your family and friends to join you there.
