REMEMBRANCE DAY PRAYER SERVICE AND PRAYER WALK FOR PEACE
On November 11, 2016, people from various faith communities will gather to proclaim “love casts out fear” as they remember, reflect, and pray for peace in our world.
There will be an Interdenominational Prayer Service at McDougall United Church (10025 – 101 Street) at 6:00 p.m. Then at 7:00 p.m., participants will gather at City Hall in downtown Edmonton for the 8th Annual Prayer Walk for Peace. There will be four stops on the walk. The time of remembrance, reflection, and prayer will be led by members of four different faith communities.
The prayer service and prayer walk are sponsored by the Edmonton Ecumenical Peace Network and the Mennonite Central Committee – Alberta.
All are welcome to the Prayer Service and the Prayer Walk for Peace.
