Downtown Senior Clergy Statement, April 14, 2021

The world is watching to see if justice will be done in Minneapolis. 

As the murder trial continues for the police killing of George Floyd, we, the Minneapolis Downtown Interfaith Senior Clergy, now also mourn the police killing of Daunte Wright. We underline our cry for justice and our condemnation of racism and white supremacy culture in the strongest terms.

Prayers for Justice and Peace for Minneapolis

Gratitude for Joining Saint Olaf in Prayer for Justice and Peace in Minneapolis.  -

I thank everyone who joined us in prayer for peace and justice to prevail in our cities during the trial of Derek Chauvin. 
Please continue to pray for peace, justice, and reform to continue, where every life is valued. 

Our formal gatherings will cease on Friday, April 23, yet we never stop praying.

During this Easter season may we continue to find hope, strength, peace, and wisdom for our lives,

Synod 2021

What is a Synod? What is the purpose?

“A Synod is a formal representative assembly designed to help a bishop in his shepherding of the local Church.”
The purpose is “to discern and establish clear pastoral priorities in a way that will both promote greater unity and lead us to a more vigorous proclamation of Jesus’ good news.”


Come Holy Spirit
Make our ears to hear
Make our eyes to see
Make our mouths to speak
Make our hearts to seek
Make our hands to reach out
And touch the world with your love.

Mary, Mother of the Church,
Pray for us.
