A Prayer Pilgrimage for Black Lives & Racial Equity

September 26 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Sponsored by Tidewater Sowers for Justice and the Virginia Interfaith Center for Public Policy. “Join us as Catholics & other People of Faith continue our Pilgrimage across Hampton Roads, adding our voices to those praying “to the Holy Spirit for the Spirit of Truth to touch the hearts of all in the United States and to [inspire] our criminal justice and law enforcement systems… [and] beg God to heal our deeply broken view of each other, as well as our deeply broken society” (U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops). This time, we journey to Hampton, to mark the 401st anniversary of the first documented Africans’ arrival in English-speaking America.
You are welcome to participate in all or either part of this pilgrimage as you are able. Please wear a face mask and adhere to CDC distancing guidelines.”
