IHM Sisters pray for peace in Monroe MI (1)

IHM Sisters pray for peace in Monroe MI (2)On September 26, the IHM Peacemakers (IHM Sisters) in Monroe, Michigan held an event called “Building a Culture of Nonviolence” IHM Peace Pole Prayer Service

Sixty people participated. They began with a welcome and introduction followed by the story of the IHM Peace Pole and excerpts from the August 6, 1995 “Peace Declaration” by the Mayor of Hiroshima.

They reflected upon and shared our hopes for peace, listened to a reading of “Prayer for Peace” by Maya Angelou.

They shared suggestions for action and distributed peace pinwheels.

They then prayed “A Prayer for an End to Violence, War and Senseless Death” by James E. Hug, S.J., recited the “Campaign Nonviolence Pledge” and concluded with “A Song for Peace. ”
