Commemoration is today

CLINTON — The Clinton Franciscans will support peace Friday with their International Day of Peace observance at The Canticle.

A day-long Prayer for Peace Retreat, themed “With whom will you make peace,” will be held at the home of the Clinton Franciscans, 841 13th Ave. North. The group has sponsored a local observance of the International Day of Peace since 2001.

The United Nations General Assembly created the International Day of Peace in 1981 to coincide with its opening session. The General Assembly established Sept. 21 as an annual day of non-violence and cease fire.

The UN vigil is observed in 202 nations to demonstrate the power of prayer and other spiritual observances in promoting peace and preventing violent conflict. Other goals are to raise public awareness and support peacemaking worldwide.

Observance for the day International Day of Peace in Clinton will begin at 8 a.m. with the Arboretum Drumming Circle. Speakers and programs throughout the day include Sister Michael Marie Burns, the Rev. Peter Sickels, Catholic Mass with Father Richard Okumu, Connie Beck, Dennis Glew, Marcia Flory, Sister Nancy Miller, April Wise, Dick Roberts and members of the Arch community.

“We have a wide range of presentations with ample time for quiet prayer and reflection,” OSF President Anne Martin Phelan said.

The Sisters of Saint Francis invites everyone to join in for all or part of the day’s events. The event is free of charge, but those planning to spend the day and have lunch at The Canticle are asked to make a reservation by calling 242-7611.
