Sisters Participate in Interfaith Prayer Vigil at the Greensburg Courthouse
A group representing the Sisters of Charity of Seton Hill attended an interfaith prayer vigil that was held at the Greensburg Court House the morning of June 13, 2020, in remembrance of George Floyd and others who were recent victims of racial bias and violence. The Sisters of Charity still in quarantine at Caritas Christi offered prayerful support for those in attendance.
Bishop Jones from Greater Parkview Church and Bishop Adams from Life Spring Church, both located in Greensburg, were present to give messages of peace to those gathered. Monsignor Riffle, rector of Blessed Sacrament Cathedral conveyed Bishop Edward Malesic’s thoughtful and spiritual comments to those present. Bishop Malesic was unable to attend due the ordination of a new priest at the Cathedral that took place that morning.
Sisters Louise Grundish, Mary Norbert Long, Barbara Einloth, Kwangshim Oh, Edie Strong, Katie Gallagher, and Colette Hanlon carried messages of prayer and support from the sisters at the motherhouse, a banner that identified the Sisters of Charity and their stance for peace and justice, and signs that expressed the prayerful support of the Sisters of Charity for solidarity and a peaceful resolution to the problems in our country.
