Archdiocese of Newark joins Pope’s global plea for World Day of Fasting, Penance and Prayer on Oct. 27, 2023

The Holy Father, Pope Francis, has called for a day of fasting and prayer, to humbly ask the Lord for “peace in our days, peace in this world.”

The Archdiocese of Newark calls for Catholics and all people of good will to answer Pope Francis’ plea to unite for a global day of fasting, penance, and prayers on Friday, Oct. 27, 2023, for peace in the Middle East and Ukraine.

Jesus, Prince of Peace, hear our Prayer.
