Election Octave

An Octave of Prayer after Our Elections
The results of the election will give some cause for celebrations, others will perhaps struggle.  We invite you to join us in asking God that we may overcome our differences and together build the kind of world God has in mind for us. 

Today we start an octave or eight days of prayers for our country, all our fellow citizens and our leaders.
Together, let us kindle in a revolution of love and tenderness.
