Standing for Peace and the Planet in Beaverton

Posted by Ryan Hall

By Eileen Sleva

We had about 35 participants at our Ecumenical Stand for Peace. Our
local Catholic newspaper and another reporter attended the event, so
we should have some positive coverage. The event included a
candlelight vigil and then a march to our Peace pole and concluded
with praying Pope Francis’ Prayer for the Earth together.

The highlight of the evening were the innumerable cars who stopped,
shouted encouragement or gave us the peace sign as we stood
proclaiming our messages. We all felt like we sent a very positive
message of support for Pope Francis, for nonviolence and for the
environment into our Beaverton community.
