We begin in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.
Today is the Feast of St. Clement. St. Clement CES is in Woodbridge.
During this month of November, we pray for racial justice. Racial justice means equal and fair treatment for people of all races.
God of justice, In your wisdom you create all people in your image, without exception. We thank you for the dignity, beauty and worth you give to each one of us.
We thank you for making us all your children, brothers and sisters in the same human family.
Open the hearts of all people.
Free us of attitudes, behaviours and words that do not show love and respect for others.
Give us the courage to speak out and speak up against racial injustice.
Strengthen us to find ways to heal wounds, build bridges, forgive and be forgiven, and establish peace and equality for all in our communities.
In Jesus’ name we pray.
