Lights for Liberty

Join Omaha area Episcopalians and friends at Memorial Park on Friday, July 12 at 7:00p to speak out against the treatment of our brothers and sisters at the border.

Lights for Liberty is a nationwide call to action to protest the inhumane treatment of people in ICE detention centers and to demand the basic human rights of all asylum seekers, both children and adults. This is an opportunity to join in solidarity, learn next steps for meaningful ways to help those in need, and to shine light on this urgent issue.

Election Day Vigil

Trinity Cathedral will offer an opportunity for prayer and silent mediation on Election Day, Tuesday, November 6 

The time we will spend together will be completely non-partisan. There will be no discussion of candidates, campaigns, or issues. We will simply offer our prayers and engage in meditation. 

The vigil was developed as a way of offering a sanctuary of peace in the midst of a tense time, and helping us all to offer our lives, our leaders, and our nation into God’s care.

The specific schedule for November 6th is as follows:
8:00 AM Morning Prayer
11:45 Organ Prelude
12:00 Noon Holy Eucharist
5:30 PM Evening Prayer
7:45 PM Compline

At least one person will be at prayer throughout the time the polls are open in Nebraska (Central Time Zone). Please contact Brother James Dowd at jdowd@episcopal-ne.org to sign up for specific time.
