St. Vincent de Paul Society of Milwaukee is an organization dedicated to the elimination of hunger and poverty in our community.


Second Community Prayer Service Scheduled, Feb. 14

“The Time Is Now to Act and Pray”


MILWAUKEE – Media outlets are invited to come and report on what residents in the city of Milwaukee are doing to protect children in their community. In response to escalating violence in our neighborhoods, a “Community Prayer Service for the Safety of Our Precious Children” will be held on Sunday, February 14, 2016 at 5 p.m. at All Saints Catholic Church, 4051 N. 25th St., Milwaukee.


Open to people of all faiths, this service will continue the powerful faith journey launched in 2015 by Very Rev. Timothy Kitzke, Vicar General of Urban Ministry of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee. Joining Fr. Kitzke will be Rev. Robert Stiefvater, Pastor of All Saints Catholic Church; Rev. Arnold Cifax, Associate Pastor of New Testament Church of Milwaukee; Rev. Martin Childs, Jr., Pastor of Pilgrim Rest Missionary Baptist Church; Christ Presbyterian Children's Choir, and the All Saints Catholic Church Gospel and Children's Choirs.


Building on the tradition from the first Community Prayer Service that was held on September 20, 2015 and attracted more than 250 people, this ecumenical group of pastors will encourage the community to pray and commit to making a positive difference to all those around them.


Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these." Gospel of Matthew 19:14
