Dear Friends,

 

Happy 2015! Here is some good news for our ministry. 

 

God of the Journey Prayer Cards Available
 

This prayer card was created for use at solidarity events honoring the 50th Anniversary of the Civil Rights Movement.  In 2015 we remember the heroic March from Selma to Montgomery and passage of the Civil Rights Act.  Download the prayer from the African American Affairs webpage.  Or, if planning an event order it on cardstock.  To receive up to 100 prayer cards FREE, email dgrimes@usccb.org 

with news of the event and desired quantity of cards.
