Discussion and Vigil for Peace in Napa

Posted by Ryan Hall
09.29.15

By Teresa Cahill

On 9/26/15 at Napa’s Juvenile Justice Center a class of 8 students sang a song about peace, a short discussion about nonviolence/peace and everyone received and read aloud the Prayer of St. Francis.

On 9/27 from 2-4 pm, on a busy intersection in Napa, 7 adults met and held signs promoting peace and nonviolence and a banner made by students of St. John the Baptist Catholic Church’s elementary school was held by the school’s librarian.

A high school student passed by and interviewed one of us and would like to become more involved. Joining us for the first time was a retired college professor who suggested that we have a community type discussion and we’ll meet on 10/11 to discuss a topic and venue.

See photos from these events below. Melanie Oberting took photos of the students making the banner and of two adults at the vigil.
