Outdoor Mass for World Peace
Hoboken Parishes celebrate Outdoor Mass for World Peace
The Parishes of St. Francis and St. Ann in Hoboken announced that they will be celebrating a joint Outdoor Mass for World Peace on Friday evening, November 7, 2014 at 7pm in the parking lot on the corner of Third and Jefferson Streets.
A spokesperson said “the world seems to be in chaos. Religious and other persecution is all we see when we turn on the news each night. We are joining together and going outside the walls of the church buildings so that members of the community can join us in prayer for world peace.”
Both parishes have roots in Franciscan tradition and feel it is important to follow the teachings of St. Francis particularly in these troubled times.
The spokesperson continued: “We believe that there is nothing greater than the power of prayer and we welcome all members of the community to join us as we ask God to protect all people from persecution and acts of terrorism.”
Mass will be celebrated at 7pm and will be followed by a candle light procession though the neighborhood. Refreshments will be served in the St. Francis Parish Center.
