Rev. Walter Cuenin, formerly pastor of Our Lady Help of Christians in Newton, is appealing to his former flock and others to help a program to discourage gang involvement and decrease urban street violence.

Now Catholic chaplain at Brandeis University in Waltham, Cuenin is promoting what's being is billed as a peace concert to honor the spirits of youths who have lost their lives to violence. The event will take place at the Episcopal Cathedral of St. Paul, 138 Tremont St., Boston, will take place this Saturday at 2 p.m.

Donations at the concert will support summer jobs for Boston youth at risk in programs promoting care for the earth. Anyone interested in more information is urged to call 617-969-6378.
