Statement from Archbishop Buechlein

A call for a day of prayer on May 15

On May 15 and 16, a great deal of focus will be placed on the execution of Timothy McVeigh and on the victims of the violence in Oklahoma City in April 1995.

I call on all Catholics and all people of good will to join me in observing Tuesday, May 15, as a special "Day of Prayer for Peace and for an End to Violence" in our country and throughout the world. I invite all priests and other pastoral leaders to include this special prayer intention in their celebrations of the Eucharist and other forms of group prayer on that day. I also invite those who would like to join in prayer to gather at SS. Peter and Paul Cathedral in Indianapolis for the celebration of Evening Prayer (Vespers) at 7:30 p.m.

Finally, even if you are not able to join in gathering at your parish or at the cathedral on May 15, I encourage you to set aside some time on that day to pray for victims of violence in all its forms and for a renewed respect for the precious gift of life.

Most Rev. Daniel M. Buechlein, O.S.B.

Archbishop of Indianapolis
