"Welcoming the Stranger": A Community Prayer Service
In response to recent events, interfaith leaders from the Las Cruces community offered an opportunity for community members to unite their voices in thoughtful prayer and reflection on Friday, February 3rd. The interfaith leaders who organized this gathering were Bishop Oscar Cantu, Pastor Jared Carson of Peace Lutheran Church, Rabbi Larry Karol of Temple Beth-El, and Radwan Jallad of the Islamic Center of Las Cruces.
They said they hoped to reaffirm our belief that the United States can and should be a nation that welcomes people seeking opportunity and individuals and families who are hoping to find refuge here from conflict and challenges in their home countries. The interfaith leaders issued a joint statement at a press conference prior to the prayer service. Click here to read.
