In response to the recent school shootings and other acts of violence in our nation’s schools and communities, parishioners in the Diocese of Burlington are invited to participate in a time of prayer for peace and healing on Holy Thursday, March 29, from 9 a.m. to noon.


This will be a time of quiet Eucharistic Adoration asking our Eucharistic Lord to shower His peace upon our schools, our communities and our world. Catholic schools are asked to have their students participate in this time of prayer.


On this day when we begin our remembrance and celebration of Jesus’s suffering, death and resurrection, it is appropriate that we spend time praying for the gift of peace and healing He alone can give.
