St. Malachy to Hold Mass of Healing, Affirmation, Thanks and Prayer for Law Enforcement Officials
A Burlington church is holding a special prayer mass to thank and recognize law enforcement officials.
On Sunday, July 17th, St. Malachy Parish, 99 Bedford Street, is inviting everyone to attend a Mass of Healing Affirmation, Thanks and Prayer to all those involved in Law Enforcement at 10 a.m.
“As a faith filled community, let us come together at this difficult time and pray for peace within our cities and country,” the invite reads. “Father John Capuci will be doing a special blessing for all those involved in law enforcement. We welcome all to come together and support one another.”
The Burlington Police Department will be in attendance.
The mass comes a week after five officers were killed and eight other injured in Dallas by a shooter who opened fire during a protest that came after two separate incidents of police shooting black men, one in Louisiana and Minnesota. The shooter said he wanted to kill white officer and said he was working alone.
