Park Forest, IL-(ENEWSPF)- The distant echo of gun fire has roared its thunderous blast in our community. The weeping of Rachel for her children is now our weeping. As an expression of solidarity and peaceseeking, the faith communities of Park Forest are gathering to pray for peace in our village, in our nation and in our world.

We will gather at St. Irenaeus Church, 78 Cherry Street, on Wednesday, September 2, at 7 p.m. for a vigil, and as an ongoing commitment, the first Wednesday of each month to join our hearts, our hands, and our voices for peace. See you there!

Please join your friends and neighbors to pray together and be a powerful peace witness in our community.

Don’t forget to spread the word to your friends and neighbors…and in your faith community!
