In 2008, our Twin Cities Ignatian Associate (IA) community held a prayer for peace event during the time of the Republican National Convention, which convened in St. Paul, Minnesota.
This year, the Ignatian Associates Ramos Community in Milwaukee, Wisconsin decided to hold a non-partisan, virtual prayer for peace event during both the Democratic and Republican conventions.
The event, called Peaceful Presence will be held virtually from August 17 – 27 during the Democratic and Republican conventions.
Please join us every day as we pray together to work towards peace.
Each day of the conventions, the program will include a prayer, quiet music for meditation, and a 10 minute reflection on peace given by a local religious leader. The reflection will focus on Peace and prayer for our world leaders, especially the leaders of our country.
We are pleased to co-sponsor this virtual program with Casa Romero Renewal Center; the Center for Peacemaking at Marquette University; the Milwaukee Inner-city Congregations Allied for Hope (MICAH); and the Interfaith Conference of Greater Milwaukee.
SCHEDULE & SPEAKERS.
We are delighted to join together with several religious leaders from within the Milwaukee area to reflect on peace. We hope to share dialogue from leaders of the Sikh Community, Zen Buddhist Community, Jewish Community, Muslim Community, Catholic Community, Lutheran Community, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Community, Baptist Community, and Methodist Community.
Each day’s prayer, music, and reflection on peace will be released early the same morning. A full list of the Peaceful Presence Virtual Program will be shared soon.
