CATHOLICS PRAYING FOR RACIAL JUSTICE
A Pilgrimage – Sunday, August 30
Chicago, IL (August 28, 2009) - Catholics Praying for Racial Justice Pilgrimage, the first of six pilgrimages sponsored by the Office for Racial Justice to be held in each of the six vicariates of the Archdiocese of Chicago, will take place in northwest suburban parishes on Sunday, August 30, beginning at 2 p.m.
Participants will begin at St. Colette Church, 3900 South Meadow Drive in Rolling Meadows, and journey by bus to three area churches: St. Edna, 2525 North Arlington Heights Road in Arlington Heights; St. James, 820 North Arlington Heights Road; and St. Raymond de Penafort, 301 S. l-Oka Avenue in Mount Prospect.
Participants may join the pilgrimage at one church or travel to all the parish sites. A 20-minute prayer service on the theme, “Break down the walls that separate us and unite us as a single body”, will take place outside each church. The pilgrimages were planned by Catholics United for Racial Justice, a committee of lay persons that plans and hosts events that focus on the need for racial justice in the Archdiocese. Other pilgrimages are set for September and October. Visit www.dwellinmylove.org for details or call the Office for Racial Justice at 312-534-8336.
