Start Planning for Greater Milw. CROP Hunger Walk

It's mid-summer, but there's barely two months to go before our annual CROP Hunger Walk at Milwaukee's lakefront on Sunday afternoon, Oct. 12.  Please save the date and consider getting involved. We have some exciting plans for this year's walk. Norma Duckworth, our walk director, can help you organize a group from your congregation or faith community, get donation pledges and have a memorable afternoon mingling with good-hearted people of many denominations and faiths.  For more information, click on the "Ending Hunger One Step at a Time" logo in the left-hand column. .   

 

Prayer Service for Peace in the Middle East

With conflict escalating in the Middle East, local religious leaders and adherents will gather for an interfaith Prayer Service for Peace in the Middle East at 5 p.m. Wednesday, July 16, in All Saints’ Cathedral, 818 E. Juneau Ave., Milwaukee.

The Interfaith Conference of Greater Milwaukee is organizing the service to unite people of many different faiths and denominations in the vision of a world where peace is possible and violence is not inevitable.

In every age and every hour, there are opportunities for diplomacy to defuse conflict, for wisdom to temper anger, for forgiveness to forestall vengeance and for faith to foster what is highest and best in the human spirit. Local leaders will offer prayers and stand together, unified in their diversity, as an example of what is possible.  

The service will conclude with the singing of Dona Nobis Pacem (Grant us Peace), in Latin, Hebrew and Arabic.
