St. John Chrysostom Parish will host a Community Mass for Peace at 7 p.m. Wednesday, July 20 at the church at 617 South Providence Road in Wallingford, Delaware County.
In the wake of violence in many communities this summer that has left people shaken and frightened, Catholics and all people are welcome to the Mass and invited to lift their concerns in united prayer and to remember everyone in the U.S. and around the world who are suffering from bloodshed.
St. John’s parishioners are reaching out to invite parishes in Chester and Delaware County in particular.
Father Edward Hallinan, pastor of St. John’s, will be the main celebrant of the Mass at which the parish’s Faithful Band will lead the congregation in sacred music.
Organizers of the Mass take inspiration from the words of Pope Francis: “Let us pray for peace: peace in the world and in each of our hearts.”
