3rd Annual International Ecumenical Prayer Breakfast

The Eparchy of Our Lady of Lebanon and the Archdiocese of Denver cordially invite members of the public, government officials and representatives of all faiths to attend the 3rd Annual International Ecumenical Prayer Breakfast at St Rafka Maronite Catholic Church in Lakewood, CO from 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 19, 2017. The theme of this year’s breakfast is P.L.A.C.E. for Faith — Peace, Love and Coexistence for the children of Abraham.

Our keynote speaker is Dr. Tom Farr of the Religious Freedom Institute, Washington, D.C.

President Trump’s recently revealed plan of peace in the Middle East is based largely on the P.L.A.C.E.Initiative born Aug. 11, 2014 in Denver, Colorado and authored by the Eparchy of Our Lady of Lebanon’s Bishop Elias Zaidan, the Archdiocese of Denver’s Archbishop Samuel Aquila and St. Rafka’s pastor Fr. Andre Mahanna. With this initiative, a voice of concern was raised for the future of religious freedom in the Middle East, in America and in the whole world. Since 2014, the message of the P.L.A.C.E. Initiative has spread far and wide, even to the highest office of the land. This breakfast is an opportunity for all people of goodwill to look intently at what threatens peace and foments hate instead of love.

Many seemingly impossible obstacles stand in the way of coexistence for the children of Abraham in the lands where monotheistic faith was born. But we believe a united effort can bring about the changes needed to strengthen and nurture peace, love and coexistence in the Middle East for religious freedom and the good of all mankind.

The suggested donation is $20 and includes breakfast and access to the seminar with special guests including, Our Lady of Lebanon Chorbishop Sharbel Maroun, Denver Auxiliary Bishop Jorge Rodriguez, Denver Archdiocese Director of Communications Karna Swanson, and U.S.A. President of the Apostolic Union Fr. Andre Mahanna. Donations will benefit The Apostolate of Our Lady of Hope d.b.a. St Rafka Mission of Hope and Mercy.

We hope you will join us.


The suggested donation is $20.
