Cathedral to host prayer service for Nicaragua on Oct. 14

(En español)

A night of eucharistic adoration for peace in Nicaragua will take place from 7-9:30 p.m. on Oct. 14 at SS. Peter and Paul Cathedral, 1347 N. Meridian St., in Indianapolis.

The Church in Nicaragua has been increasingly repressed by the government of President Daniel Ortega, with priests being arrested and imprisoned, the apostolic nuncio and members of the Missionaries of Charity being expelled from the country, and Catholic radio stations being shut down.

In August, Bishop Rolando Alvarez of the Diocese of Matagalpa, Nicaragua, was arrested by the national police and remains in custody.

The bilingual prayer service is being organized by the Nicaraguan community in Indianapolis and will feature Catholic speaker and worship leader Felix Navarrete, a native of Nicaragua now living in Indianapolis.

For more information about the prayer service, contact Navarrete at 317-597-3751 or at †
