Prayer Vigil for Peace, Burntwood- All welcome

Monday 11th September 2017 

3pm – 9pm

At the front (weather permitting) of St Joseph’s R.C Church Burntwood, Ws7 0BB

An opportunity to think about creating a world in which we can leave peacefully with one another.

People are welcome to pop in briefly or spend some time with us, whatever suits them. They can light a candle for a cause close to their heart and sit and contemplate in our beautiful Church.

Later on we will be lighting candles out side the Church at the front to show that Jesus is the light of the world. Vigil“Peace cannot be kept by force; it can only be achieved by understanding.”
