1st 2019 Multi-Faith Prayer Service

Mt. Zion Synagogue, located at 523 W 14th St. from

4:00 to 5:00pm on March 31, 2019

Light refreshments will be served after.

 

Please join the Multi-Cultural Center of Sioux Falls, Pax Christi South Dakota, and the Presentation Sisters, along with local Buddhist, Christian, Hindu, Indigenous, Jewish, and Muslim communities in coming together for the common goals of peace and diversity.

This is a gathering to lift up the major faiths in Sioux Falls to stand united for our families and communities living in Sioux Falls. This is to promote spreading the light and love of diversity and culture. Not only will we be representing different faiths but different cultures.

“When a community faces a crisis, no matter their color, race, or their political persuasion, weather related or other tragic event, it comes together and finds hope amidst the suffering.  Our societal suffering and crisis today is manifested with an intolerance to embrace religious diversity.  So, we will come together to pray for HOPE amidst SUFFERING, VIOLENCE and DISCORD, and show the world that HOPE is breaking through the ground of suffering and violence,” states Sister Peggy Boehm, Presentation Sisters, Caminando Juntos.

Dr. David Aronson, Mt. Zion Synagogue agrees “When feeling despair, depression, concern, or loss, our feelings can be overwhelming and debilitating.   At such moments we can turn to God and pour out our heart in our own word.”

“This multi-faith prayer service is to show unity and be the light of compassion and grace in Sioux Falls,” stated Christy Nicolaisen, Executive Director of the Multi-Cultural Center of Sioux Falls. “All are welcome.”
