Napa, CA Holds Peace Vigil and More!

Posted by Ryan Hall
10.03.16

By Teresa Cahill Bravo

Napa started the CNV Week,  09/20,  at St. John the Baptist Catholic Church’s, Tuesday morning 7:30 am Mass.  For the homily, Fr. Pat Stephenson asked that I say a few words about the campaign and then we read in unison the Prayer for Peace that was distributed earlier.   A photographer/artist friend printed a dove on the front and on the back was a peace prayer that we adapted.

On Saturday, 09/24/16, at Juvenile Hall, 20 students read together the Prayer of St. Francis that had been distributed and then listened to a song (a CD recorded by a friend of mine) called “Deep Peace”  It also included a short meditation on peace being allowed into our minds, hearts and the world.  We then sang an original song “Peace, Peace Perfect Peace is the gift of Christ Our Lord”, that the same friend taught me many years ago.

On Sunday, O9/25/16, Twelve  of us gathered at the four corners of a busy intersection in Napa holding flags and signs for peace and nonviolence (also in Spanish) and the banner that the students had made at St. John the Baptist Catholic School (See photo above). I gave the remaining prayer cards for peace to one of my friends (a Quaker) and she also was having people sign up for the pledge for nonviolence.
