Deacons hold 10th sunrise service praying for an end to violence

For the last 10 years, the Black deacons of Chicago have led sunrise services near around the start of the school year to pray for an end to gun violence in the city. They gathered again and continued praying on Sept. 12, this time not on Oakwood Beach but in the parking lot of St. Katharine Drexel Church, 9015 S. Harper Ave., because of social distancing.
