[Episcopal News Service] The Diocese of Milwaukee is encouraging Episcopalians to participate in the Aug. 12 Day of Prayer for the Sikh Community following the Aug. 5 shooting rampage at a Sikh temple in Oak Creek, Wisconsin.

The diocese offered information here about the prayer day organized by the Wisconsin Council of Churches, including a bulletin insert.

Bishop Steven Miller also noted additional prayer vigils planned in both near-by Milwaukee and 80 miles to the east in Madison.

The e-mailed information also includes a link for Episcopalians to learn more about the Sikh religion and a list of places to support the community with financial donations.

    Amen on supporting the Sikh Community.

  2. ML Johnston says:

    I am an Episcopalian. I support the Sikh community. This shooting was outrageous, reprehensible and sickening. America stands for FREEDOM of WORSHIP. It is God’s way. Thou shalt love thy lord, thy God with all thy love and with all thy mind and strength. Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. That is what Americans stand for.
