St. Catherine of Siena Parish Women’s Council holds prayer rally for LB Police Officers

On Saturday morning, Sept 26, a prayer rally sponsored by the St. Catherine of Siena Parish Women’s Council was held in support of our Laguna Beach Police Force. The rally, held in front of the Laguna Beach Police Station, was organized by Virginia Atherton, a Women’s Council leader, together with Fr. Pat Rudolph, Pastor of St. Catherine of Siena Catholic Church. 

The entire parish was involved through prayers of support – with a number of members in attendance.

Rallies have been organized throughout the country to support the police and other first responders. 

Coleman Raffo says, “A Prayer Initiative was inaugurated by the Women’s Council at St. Catherine Church in December of 2018 and is part of Our Lady’s Blue Army, a worldwide apostolate of prayer and sacrifice for peace and conversion of hearts founded in 1946. We hope to continue our public call for prayer to strengthen all of us in these challenging times.”
