    This weekend will also have the major
    Procession of concern for the mounting
    Danger conditions in the middle east.
    Many individuals who will be there have
    Expressed growing alarm at the destruction
    Of centuries old faith communities and
    Growing sectarian violence.

    The procession will begin 12 Noon at
    St Charles Borremeo Sidney Place.
    It will proceed to Our Lady of Lebanon
    Remsen and Henry Sts .and continue
    To Assumption Church 55 Cranberry
    Offering prayers for the those being
    In danger ed and the past victims of this region.Which is sacred to so many and
    Effects all our lives.

    Speaking as an individual, I and my family
    Hope that all heights residents of good
    Intent and conscience devote this small
    Amount of time to stem what is developing
    In this cauldron of danger to world peace.

    P.S. In the last few months, there has been
    An increase in the number of nuclear
    Weapons introduced into the area….
