Please join your sisters and brothers in faith in a celebration of our diverse faith and prayer traditions in central Pennsylvania and to pray for justice and peace at the 10th Annual Commonwealth Interfaith Service: Prayers for Justice and Peace on Monday, May 7, 2018 at 6:00 p.m. at Beth El Temple, 2637 N. Front Street, Harrisburg, PA (directions at https://www.mapquest.com/search/results?slug=%2Fus%2Fpennsylvania%2Fbeth-el-temple-2086012&query=Beth%20El%20Temple&page=0; click on “Get Directions”). Parking is available in the lot next to the Temple—enter from Front or 2nd Street.
This service is being held in observance of the National Day of Prayer, which is always the first week of May. It will be a celebration of the religious diversity of our state and our nation, as well as the diversity of ways to pray. We focus on peace, justice, and creating a culture of shalom, hospitality, and welcome. This year is a special celebration of our tenth year of conducting this service, and we have invited representatives from our local, county, and state governments to join us for this celebration.
