Light The City

Join us and Cardinal Wuerl on Saturday, February 17th at the Cathedral of St. Matthew the Apostle for an evening of prayer and street evangelization!

Volunteer in one of these ways:

  1. Be a Street Evangelizer – encounter and invite others
  2. Be a Prayer Warrior – spend time in the church praying throughout the evening
  3. If you are a priest, join us to hear Confessions throughout the evening

Following a prayer service, teams of volunteers will head out on the streets and invite passers-by to come into the church to light a candle, pause peacefully in prayer with the Blessed Sacrament, and talk with a priest.

7-8 pm: Volunteer training

8-11 pm: Prayer service, adoration and opportunities to talk with priests

We invite all to share their prayer intentions with us on Saturday evening on social media using #LighttheCity.
