Share post:

The First Presbyterian Church of Verona and the Episcopal Church of the Holy Spirit have united to offer the community a joint service of prayer for the well-being of our nation. The service will be held on Thursday, August 17, at the First Presbyterian Church, located at 10 Fairview Avenue.

The congregations invite all to stop in and pray any time between 6:15 and 7:00 p.m. on Thursday. While at the church, attendees will have an opportunity to:

  • Light a candle.
  • Receive written prayers that you can use to pray for our country while in the sanctuary and/or any time you need.
  • Sit quietly and pray with other people of faith while listening to reflective music offered by violinist, Lynn Rubier-Capron.
  • Receive anointing with oil for any wounds pertaining to our growing national cultural divide.
  • Pray for the ministry and work of people who work to bring peace, justice and a strong moral tone to our nation.

Additionally, families will find help speaking to and praying with their children about difficult issues that they are hearing about on the news, internet and in school.

Rev. Gerald Racioppi (Church of the Holy Spirit) and Pastor Lynn Rubier-Capron (First Presbyterian Church Verona) designed this casual service to help busy people and families find a moment to pray.
