Peace Circle and Labyrinth Walk in Chicago

Posted by Ryan Hall

By Sr. Janet Ryan

Precious Blood Ministry had a nice day of nonviolent actions yesterday despite the on/off rain. We combined a few activities into the day. We began with a peace circle with the larger community/neighborhood asking the questions: What event or person has inspired you in peacemaking or nonviolence? What are you doing now or do you want to do to promote peace and nonviolence? We showed these two videos below on the International Day of Peace and the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals: Building Blocks for Peace.

We also moved outside and had a blessing for a new fountain of healing and our peace pole. We closed with pizza and salad for everyone.
