Palm Sunday Procession for Peace

Mar 7, 2024

  • 2:30-2:45 p.m.: Gather in the parking lot of Corinthian Baptist Church, 814 School St., Des Moines
  • 3:00 p.m.: Proceed to St. John’s Lutheran Church, 600 6th Ave., Des Moines
  • 3:30 p.m.: Worship at St. John’s Lutheran Church

There will be a Procession led by a donkey, and a Prayer Service for Peace. We will gather to raise our voices in support of justice and peace. We will lift our voices and prayers calling for a cease fire and diplomacy in Palestine/Israel and Ukraine/Russia; an end to war and sanctions that kill in Iran, N. Korea, Syria and Yemen; and for an end to violence here at home. We will remember the true meaning of Palm Sunday, and renew our commitment to be instruments of God’s peace. Keynote speaker will be Rev. Christine Cowan.

Please bring palms from your Sunday morning service.
