Persecuted Christians – prayer event
March 7 @ 7:00 pm
Our Lady Help of Persecuted Christians Prayer Evening will be held at 7:00 p.m. Thursday, March 7 at Holy Spirit Parish, 114 Kingsmere Place, Saskatoon.
In every age, Christians have suffered for their faith, from the Roman Coliseum to the recent beheadings perpetrated by ISIS. Brave men and women, embracing the cross of Jesus, have gone to their death rather than deny their faith. Today, the witness of martyrs continues in an especially intense way in the Middle East, where priests are murdered for offering Mass and families are driven from their homes for displaying a cross. Featuring the newly commissioned icon of Our Lady Help of Persecuted Christians, we will gather as a church community to render spiritual aid to those who suffer for their faith. Please join the Knights and families in this special evening of prayer.
