The day is aimed at raising awareness around this global issue and to highlight the plight of the millions of women, men and children who are victims of trafficking from all corners of the world, as well as at encouraging people to take action against this crime.
When: Sunday, August 10, 2014
What: Peggy, Mary Ann Rossi, and Ann Marie Strileckis are arranging a “pray and play” day for young women from 18-35. The day will begin with prayer, include lunch, provide beach time, and end with prayer. (Sunday Mass is not in the plan.)
Who: From your parish, neighborhood, ministry, family…….extend an invitation to a young woman whom you have begun to build a relationship with. Naturally, you are invited too, but it’s not required that you accompany those you invite.
