By Emily España with the Wheaton Franciscan Sisters

9/25 – Using the universal languages of silence and music, we gathered with people of all faith traditions to join our spirits for peace in our cities, in our country, and in our world. Together, we can reach deep into our Divine wisdom and build a unified energy toward a peaceful world.  The event included a Eucharistic Liturgy, 15-minute ongoing silent meditation sessions in the Chapel and outdoor walking meditations on the Peace Path and a Concert. Together people experienced the message of peace and harmony through music, song and inspirational words from various world traditions.Around 100 people attended!
