The sisters at Clare Hall will be holding a half hour of prayer in their chapel on Fridays from 12:45-1:15 for the reconciliation and healing of racism in Milwaukee. This is being done in solidarity with an invitation from Fr. Tim Kitzke, Vicar General of Urban Ministry for the Archdiocese of Milwaukee, to come to the Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist to pray each Friday from 12:45-1:15 to end racism. On August 16, between 25-30 sisters gathered in the Clare Hall chapel to place this intention before God.
The invitation from Fr. Kitzke appeared in a letter he wrote in the Catholic Herald, the Archdiocesan paper, letting the people of Milwaukee, and the entire Archdiocese, know that, “We unequivocally stand with the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops in condemning the violence and hatred playing out at a gathering of white supremacists in Charlottesville, Virginia.” In his letter he stated: “We really need you to join us. Without question, the time is now.”
The prayer vigils at the Clare Hall Chapel will be ongoing.
