A Moment for Prayer, Peace and Harmony Reflected at Pallottine Renewal Center

Although the day ended with gunfire and stores being looted, the anniversary of Michael Brown’s death was also observed through peaceful events across the area, including Florissant. Some organizations offered free school supplies and some groups joined in peaceful marches.

At 3 p.m. Sunday, Marillyn Webb, executive director of the Pallottine Renewal Center, 15270 Old Halls Ferry Road, welcomed guests to a service focused on praying for peace and harmony in North County.

Rance Thomas, president of North County Churches Uniting for Racial Harmony and Justice, was among the leaders of the United Prayer for Peace service. In speaking beforehand, he said, “Because of the issues brought to light in the Ferguson community and in our nation by the Michael Brown incident, it is very important for the community to come together in prayer for peace, justice and unity for all on the anniversary of this tragic event.””
