Peace Pole Dedication – St Bernard’s Church, Sharon, Connecticut- USA
September 11, 2011
It was a lovely day outside St Bernard’s Church in Sharon where approximately 50 people gathered to dedicate a Peace Pole and pray for world peace. Fr. Francis led his parishioners in front of the Peace Pole and briefly spoke about his purpose of planting it as a reminder to think and pray for peace, particularly on this occasion of the 9-11 Tenth Anniversary. Together we prayed the prayer, “May Peace Prevail On Earth” followed by declaring the peace prayer for every continent in the world, and a moment of silent meditation to offer peace, love and forgiveness throughout the world. It was truly a heartwarming day to see and participate with everyone as they enthusiastically prayed for peace.
