On Sunday, Dec. 12, St. John the Baptist Catholic Church in Beloit, Kansas, will become the second Catholic church in the U.S. to be recognized as a Star on the Mantle of Our Lady, Queen of Peace by Comunità Regina della Pace (Community of Queen of Peace).
Comunitá Regina della Pace is an international apostolate of Eucharistic adoration created in 2008 to foster peace and reconciliation around the world.
“Division is so rampant in our world and in our culture that I don't know that there's a more significant time or a more significant petition, especially in the Western world and in the United States, than peace,” said Father Jarett Konrade, pastor of St. John the Baptist.
As a member of this international community, St. John the Baptist will join churches around the world in praying intentionally for peace during Mass and in the context of Eucharistic adoration.
