On September 24, St. John’s will add our intentions to those around the world for the UN International Day of Peace on September 21. The United Nations invites all nations and people to honor a cessation of hostilities during the Day, and to otherwise commemorate the Day through education and public awareness on issues related to peace.
We’ll acknowledge the violence in the world and respond through prayer. Our Mustard Seed offering that day will go to Kids4Peace. Founded in the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem in 2002, Kids4Peace is a global movement of Jewish, Christian and Muslim youth and families, dedicated to ending conflict and inspiring hope in divided societies around the world.
Our 10 am Eucharist will end with a blessing of the Peace Pole.
