Prayer Vigil with the Episcopal Peace Fellowship
By Abby Suarez, Parish Administrator, All Souls Cathedral
The Western North Carolina Chapter of the Episcopal Peace Fellowship will hold a prayer vigil every Sunday afternoon during the month of October and the first Sunday in November. It is our hope that we can both pray for our country and help encourage people to vote. Please come join us on the spacious front lawn of All Souls for five weeks at 5:00 for a half hour of masked and socially distanced prayer and hope. The Reverend Ross Jones, our leader and one of our adjunct clergy will begin each gathering with a prayer for peace in our country. In 2016, the vigil for peace encouraged getting out the vote with signs along Hendersonville Road: "VOTE" and "Vote for Peace and Justice." Many passersby expressed appreciation of the sight of a house of worship peacefully encouraging the right to vote. All are welcome to participate. Remember to wear your mask and make a sign to hold, if you'd like.
