Peace Pole Presentation in Atlanta

Posted by Erin Bechtol

Marist School, an independent Catholic School grades 7th – 12th in Atlanta, recognized the International Day of Peace with a prayer service and presentation at its permanent Peace Pole.  Students, faculty and staff signed pledges committing to non-violence, peace and respect, as well as resolving to become an Anti-Defamation League’s “No Place for Hate” school.  In addition, the community learned about the story of Sadako Susaki and participated in making origami Peace Cranes.  Each person who signed the pledge received a Hershey’s Kiss that read “I pledged to be Peaceful.”

Afterwards, the peace pledges hung on a banner on campus as a visual sign of Marist’s commitment to living and acting peacefully.   Marist’s Campus Ministry coordinated the program in collaboration with the Theology Department, Office of Inclusion and Diversity, as well as the MOSAIC students club.
