We had about 350 people that came for Peace Day at the Casa. We also had weather warnings and flash flood warnings….yes, this was in Arizona. Doesn’t happen often but it was a threat…. However, we were able to do the aerial photo outside (see above) of heart shape with peace sign signifying “Peace Within Our Heart” and the bad weather never materialized. It did keep people away from the concert for later that night.
The Interfaith Prayer service followed the photo with a Candlelight procession into the church which was nicely attended with about 250 people.
The Casa Peace Award was presented to Fr. John Hardin, OFM and the Mayor of Paradise Valley, AZ attended and presented the Casa with a Proclamation for Peace Day.
