Christian congregations will come together Jan. 18-25, to pray for unity, an event profoundly connected to the founders of the Society of Atonement at Graymoor in Garrison.
Organized by the Franciscan Friars of the Atonement, a week of prayer services and reflections in Garrison and neighboring communities concludes on Saturday, Jan. 25. The public is invited to attend the closing worship service with Sister Lorelei Francis Fuchs, SA, at 7 p.m. in the Graymoor Spiritual Life Center, 5th Floor Library, followed by a free concert at 8 p.m. in Our Lady of Atonement Chapel (formerly Pilgrim Hall) at Graymoor, featuring singer/songwriter Michel Pascal.
Sr. Lorelei has served as a research assistant for the National Council of Churches USA. She is also the past-president of the North American Academy of Ecumenists, and she is on the editorial board of the Journal of Ecumenical Studies. She is a member of the Methodist-Roman Catholic Joint Commission.
Pascal will sing music based on the Gospel of St. John, Saint Therese, Saint Paul, Blessed Mother Teresa and others as well as part of his current work, AGAPE, a medley of songs and meditations.
Graymoor is located at 1350 Route 9, Garrison. Call 845-424-2111.
