´╗┐Special Prayers Given For Peace

Special holy hour devotions last night in St. Thomas Catholic church constituted the chief observance in Ann Arbor yesterday of the day of prayer for peace designated by President Roosevelt pursuant to a resolution adopted by Congress

Prayers for peace were offered in other churches in the city.

At St. Thomas church, a portion of the Christmas peace message of Pius XII was read by Rev. John M Lynch, assistant pastor, who conducted the service. Each family in the parish was requested to send a representative to the service, and the devotions drew a crowd of 400 persons.
