Posted: Updated:

A call for prayers of peace. Coadjutor Archbishop Michael Byrnes asking all priests of our Archdiocese of Agana to offer prayers of peace during Masses at their different parishes this Sunday.

This is in response to the situation this week involving threats by North Korea.

In his message Byrnes states, "please offer prayers for peace between our nations, just resolution of differences, and prudence in both speech and action. Please also offer prayers for the men and women of our military, especially those whom we host on Guam, that they might find grace for diligence and courage as they execute their respective duties."

A Pray for Peace at Fatima Rosary rally is set for this Sunday at the Plaza de Espana in Hagatna around noon.
