A prayer service will be held at 9am at Christ Church Cathedral as a prelude to the "March for Our Lives" event on March 24th. Bishops Bill Gafkjen (ELCA) and Douglas Sparks (the Episcopal bishop of Northern Indiana) will lead this brief service of prayer, a scripture reading and a couple of hymns, in order to gather and center those who are participating in the March. The idea is that this service, lasting no more than about 20 minutes will also allow our folks to meet up in a central spot in order to make their way to the State House, located just a couple of blocks away.
Bishop Gafkjen plans to participate in the March as an expression of the statement of support adopted by the ELCA Conference of Bishops. Click here to read the statement.
Christ Church Cathedral is located at 125 Monument Circle, Indianapolis.
Parking is available both on the street and at Express Park garage at 20 N. Pennsylvania Street (Southwest corner of Pennsylvania and Market). A few handicapped accessible parking spaces are located near the church doors on Monument Circle.
