This coming weekend, Friday, February 15, 2013 through Sunday, February 17, 2013, the Council of Religious Leaders of Metropolitan Chicago is calling on all faith communities as they gather for worship to join in special prayer for the victims of gun violence and their families.

May their prayers also seek guidance in the ways in which together and as one, we may act to eliminate this scourge from our land.
