A Resolution Copper mine threatens to destroy Oak Flat. From the beginning of time, Apache Stronghold has grounded their resistance in the strength of their religious practice and spiritual relationship with the land.
Apache Stronghold asks people of other faiths to join them in this spiritual struggle. On November 4, Apache Stronghold will amplify these intercessions into a prayer-rising for the preservation of Oak Flat. Indigenous people will gather at Oak Flat to pray according to their ways. People of other faiths will also gather to encounter the Holy and to confront, through prayer, the forces of destruction brought by Resolution Copper.
The St. Louis Catholic Worker will gather for an inclusive prayer service of our Christian tradition. We hope to add our humble spiritual strength to this larger effort at our Indigenous partners' request.
Join us at 12 Noon on November 4th as we plan to gather in prayer outdoors with the land at Tower Grove Park’s Lily Pond Shelter.
