Diocese to participate in statewide prayer vigil Nov. 22

SOUTH CAROLINA—Gov. Nikki Haley is urging all faith communities to participate in a statewide Day of Prayer on Tuesday, Nov. 22.

Bishop Robert E. Guglielmone said the Diocese of Charleston will participate in the Day of Prayer, and encourages all parishes to plan something special to commemorate the day.

Gov. Haley said it will be a time for South Carolinians, regardless of their religious denomination, “to pray for continued strength and healing across the state and give thanks for the state’s blessings,” according to a press release.

Bishop Guglielmone highly encouraged churches to ring their bells for an extended time at noon, if possible.

He also suggested including the following special intention during the daily Mass: On this special Day of Prayer in South Carolina, let us have compassion toward each other, count our blessings, and remember that we are one state, one people. Let us prayer to the Lord.

Other suggestions from the bishop include:

  • Offer a special daily Mass at noon
  • Pray the rosary at noon
  • Offer mid-day prayer
  • Offer an hour of adoration and exposition at noon

Check with your local parish for information on Day of Prayer services, or visit their social media sites.

“In South Carolina, we know how to have compassion toward each other, count our blessings, and remember that we are one state, one people,” Haley said.
