Students in Oklahoma City Spread Message of Peace

Posted by Ryan Hall
09.24.17

The Casady Service Learning Program in collaboration with the Casady Priests, faculty and YAC (Youth Active in the Community) brought speakers to the Chapel.  Speakers addressed the theme of the day which highlighted areas we need to work on to give peace one day a chance.  We also had activities connected to the 11 Days of Global Unity such as  writing gratitude letters, helping Primary Division and Middle Division art class students assemble their pinwheels for peace day.  We also had a walk for water and we showed the movie Happy for anyone interested in attending.

On Peace Day 900 students were involved in observances of the day with Choir performances, pinwheels for peace, and peace movement.  See memories at http://casadypeaceweek.blogspot.com/, as well as a short video and photos below.
