Interfaith Prayer Service: 12:45 pm
Festival: 1:00- 5:00 pm
The Interfaith Prayer Service will be held at Charter Oak Cultural Center, 21 Charter Oak Ave, Hartford at 12:45, gathering people from around the archdiocese to pray for the respect and care for creation. Children and families are invited to participate in arts and crafts activities at Charter Oak, beginning at 12:00 pm.
Following the prayer service, participants will be invited to march (less than one mile) through downtown Hartford to the Riverfront Plaza Festival, making a public statement that climate change is REAL. The Festival will offer people an opportunity to learn how to protect our planet, incorporating green businesses, exciting performances, engaging exhibits, and fun activities for all ages.
Both the Interfaith Prayer Service and the many Plaza activities offer great opportunities for parish and family involvement. Join us for this important day of prayer and celebration.
