Prayer Service – October 18, 2020

This continues to be a most challenging time for our community and country–overwhelmed by the shadow of gun violence, the Covid-19 pandemic, and entrenched social injustice. So the people of St. Michaels’ Episcopal Church, Trenton, and Trinity Church, Princeton–in partnership with community support agencies, first responders, and local faith communities–invite you to a service of prayer, hope, faith, and action.  In this service, we will name our grief and loss, find hope in unity, seek a vision for a stronger communion, strengthen our faith, and call people to action and transformation, healing and wholeness. We will also dedicate a Prayer Wall which stand in the months ahead as a holy place where all may come to add their prayers and remembrances, hopes and dreams, as we, united in love, find our way forward.

The two churches will offer a virtual meeting/service on Sunday, October 18 at 3 pm.
