Ottawa Prayer Vigil for Peace in Syria - Photos de la Vigile de Priere pour la Paix en Syrie, le Monde
The Prayer Vigil for Peace in Syria was held yesterday afternoon from 1:00 to 4:30 PM in Saint Patrick Basilica.
Ottawa's Chapter of Communion and Liberation animated the first hour, with readings, reflections and hymns/devotional songs.
The Queenship of Mary Community animated the second hour with a French-English recitation of the Rosary and a sung version of the Divine Mercy Chaplet around 3 o'clock.
A francophone musician, Pascal Gauthier, led the third hour with meditative songs and antiphons.
I was very pleased with the turn out; alternating with six other confessors, there were quite a few confessions herard, offering individual reconciliation to many.
The Mass that followed at 4:30 featured penitential attire in purple vestments and solemn music led by the parish choir.
