Upcoming Events

United In Prayer

The women religious vocation directors of our Diocese regularly sponsor prayers for peace called United in Prayer.

This time of prayer is a sign of hope and unity, and a moment of peace and encouragement for others and ourselves as a praying community.  Whether you can be in person or online, please join in praying for peace.

The next United in Prayer will be on Tuesday, August 20, 2024, at 6:00pm in Goebbel Park at the Bell Tower, Mainstrasse.  You can also join the prayer via Facebook Live at the event link or on the Sisters of Divine Providence and Sisters of Notre Dame Facebook pages:
