Hundreds of cars honked in response to the message of peace proclaimed Tuesday evening in Beaverton, Oregon. Members of several Catholic parishes joined with members of other congregations around Beaverton for an Ecumenical Candlelight vigil as part of Campaign Nonviolence Week of Action. Signs and banners proclaimed peace to the community. The vigil ended with a march through the city streets to the local Peace pole for a prayer service. The concluding song “We shall overcome” was an inspiration to all involved to continue on our mission to create a world of peace.
