St. Monica Parish begins series of novenas on July 15 to end violence

On July 15, members of St. Monica Parish in Indianapolis will begin a series of eight novenas—72 days—to end violence. All are welcome to join in the prayer, which each person can say on their own time.

The novenas, or nine-day prayers, will be posted on the St. Monica website (www.stmonicaindy.org), on St. Monica Parish’s Facebook page (St. Monica-Indy) and available on cards in the church at 6131 N. Michigan Road in Indianapolis.

The first novena will be to the Holy Spirit for enlightenment to open hearts to turn toward peace rather than violence.

The series of eight novenas will culminate in a prayer vigil sponsored by The Church Federation of Greater Indianapolis on Sept. 25 (location and time to be determined). The vigil will be held in honor of families who have been affected by recent violence.

All members of the archdiocese are invited to join in this prayer for peace in our community and world.

For more information, contact Ed Witulski at ewit23@yahoo.com or 317-590-6970, or Dabrice Bartet at dbartet@comcast.net or 317-523-4193.
