Today, as we celebrate the International Day of Peace, we reflect on the 2017 U.N. Peace Day Theme:
TOGETHER for Peace: Respect, Safety and Dignity for All
This theme is based on the TOGETHER global campaign that promotes respect, safety and dignity for everyone forced to flee their homes in search of a better life. TOGETHER brings together the organizations of the United Nations System, the 193 member countries of the United Nations, the private sector, civil society, academic institutions and individual citizens in a global partnership in support of diversity, non-discrimination and acceptance of refugees and migrants.
To commemorate the day, Pax Christi of Southeastern SD, held a Prayer Service on Thursday, September 21 at Sertoma Park in Sioux Falls, SD. We have provided a copy of our Prayer Service for you.
We invite you to partner with us in working for peace and justice both locally and throughout the world. To learn what Presentation Sisters are doing worldwide, visit www.internationalpresentationassociation.org
May Peace Be With You!
