Ecumenical service 7 p.m. Sunday at St. Mary's
WILLMAR -- The Willmar Area Ministerial Association will host an ecumenical prayer service at 7 p.m. Sunday at the Church of St. Mary, 713 12th St. SW., in Willmar.
The special 9/11 anniversary service is called "A day and a decade: A service of remembrance and thanksgiving."
The event is being organized by Vinje Lutheran Church, Bethel Lutheran Church Calvary Lutheran Church and the Church of St. Mary.
Father Steve Verhelst, from St. Mary's, said organizers hope the event will "allow the gift of silence to provide an opportunity for each person to reflect on their place in the world, remember who we are and that we are not alone, and to hear a voice of hope that speaks to us: Be not afraid."
