Sisters Invite Public to Peace Tree Lighting and Contemplative Prayer

The Congregation of Sisters of St. Agnes and their Associates invite the public to join them for the annual lighting of the Peace Tree on November 24 from 6-7 PM at the Chapel of the Sisters of St. Agnes Motherhouse, 320 County Road K, Fond du Lac, WI. The hour of contemplative prayer will ask for peace in our hearts and respect for all people, races, religions, and countries.

For 28 years, the Sisters of St. Agnes have lit a Peace Tree in late November and displayed it at the motherhouse during the Advent and Christmas seasons. The first peace Tree lighting was initiated by Sister Marie Scott, CSA, during Desert Storm in 1990. This year, the ceremony will pray specifically for Syrians, Kurds, Yemenis, Afghans, Nicaraguans, Filipinos, Mexicans, and Somalis who are suffering from violence.

Each month, the sisters welcome the public to join them for contemplative prayer. The prayer nights are held from 6-7 PM on the last Sunday of each month until the end of April. During the gathering attendees spend time in quiet prayer. Praying in community is a powerful experience that leaves one with a feeling of peace. In the midst of confusion, discord, and uncertainty, it can be difficult to find quiet and stillness; CSA Sisters and Associates offer this prayer time as a potential solution to that problem.

Everyone is invited to attend the contemplative prayer evenings, regardless of their faith tradition, and no reservations are required. For more information, please call Chelsea Koenigs at 920-907-2300 or ckoenigs@csasisters.org.
