An event at Rochester’s St. Monica Church will focus on alleviating anxiety by helping individuals to cultivate inner peace. The program will focus on the Jesus Prayer as a pathway to peace: “My peace I give you, not as the world gives it.” The event will take place at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 14, at St. Monica, 831 Genesee St.
