The Eden Area Interfaith Council, in conjunction with Pax Christi, Castro Valley, CA and the East Bay Regional Park District, observed the International Day of Peace on Sept. 21 by Lake Chabot. The event included songs, talks about peace, and prayers by different faith communities. There were about 85 people in attendance. After the celebration, some participated in a contemplative walk in the park.
