Day of Prayer for World Peace: Spirit of Assisi, An Interfaith Celebration

Seattle Presbytery

Let us come together to renew our commitment to peace in the world

Vatican II urged us to take our faith into the world in 1964. In 1986 religious leaders of all faiths gathered in Assisi to pray for world peace. Today, 25 years later, it is up to us to take the interfaith Spirit of Assisi to a new level.

WHAT: Interfaith Service to Renew the Spirit of Assisi ~ 1986
WHEN: Thursday, October 27, 2011; 7:00 p.m. - Reception to Follow (Bring Cookies to Share)
WHERE: St Patrick Church - 2702 Broadway Avenue E, Seattle, WA 98102

You are invited to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of that great day, October 27, 1986, when religious leaders from around the world met in Assisi to pray for world peace. Assisi was selected as the venue for that occasion because of St. Francis’ inspiring stories of love, courage and commitment to promote peace across the lines of faith, culture and politics. St. Francis "incarnated those high aspects of humanity, simplicity, humility" that enable people to recognize each other as brothers and sisters and to see all of creation as the work of the same hands that made them.
