A Day of Fasting and Prayer

The Diocese of SE Florida has commended the request of the Episcopal Anglican Diocese of Jerusalem to designate tomorrow, October 17th, 2023 as a day of fasting and prayer for and end to the violence in the Holy Land.

The Episcopal Church of St. Mary Magdalene & St. Martin, condemns all acts of terrorism, and as Christians, we pray that there is a de-escalation and that the root causes of violence and oppression may be confronted and challenged so that a new understanding of peace prevails. Please join us in a day of fasting and prayer for peace. We will offer a special litany for peace and Eucharist service at the end of the day, at 6:30pm on October 17th in our Sanctuary.

We commend to you the following statements and invite you to join in this day of prayer and fasting.
