PEACE

Action: Monthly Prayer for Peace
We come together to pray for peace in our world on the 4th Wednesday of each month. The public is invited to join us at 6:30 pm in the Motherhouse Chapel in Sparkill.

We support peaceful rather than violent means to achieve regime changes.

We implore President Obama and his administration to work for peace in conjunction with the international community through the United Nations.

We believe that working this way is the best path towards achieving a peaceful solution to the current crisis.

We are opposed to the killing of innocent children, women and men of Iraq.

We are opposed to pouring billions of dollars into death and destruction at the expense of the needs of the American people for adequate healthcare, affordable housing, a decent education, and protection of the environment. 

We urge our government leaders to reject the use of violence and to use every diplomatic means to secure a lasting peace.
