Faith leaders and law enforcement from across the state will gather Tuesday night to pray for peace.
After the shooting deaths of two New York policemen, and the events in Ferguson, Missouri, Rev. Robert Marciano thought it would set a tone in Rhode Island if there was a prayer for peace, for law enforcement, and for those who strive for justice.
“The power of prayer can make a difference. And coming together, getting to know each other, as well as praying together is nothing but a win-win for everyone,” said Marciano.
Marciano said news of the service has been well received by both the faith community and in law enforcement.
Tonight’s service is at 7:00pm at the Cathedral of Saints Peter and Paul in Providence and is open to the public.
