Here is the worship aid for tonight's prayer service. All are welcome to attend this prayer for peace in Syria and Egypt.
Bishop Pates will precede the prayer service with an update on the urgency of the need for prayer. In addition to his role as Bishop of the Diocese of Des Moines, he serves as chairman of the USCCB Committee on International Justice and Peace. Along with Cardinal Dolan and other bishops around the United States, he has been outspoken on the position of the Catholic Church on the matter of military intervention in Syria.
