Peace Vigil -- September 18-19

As we have since 2005, First Parish Church will join with other community members to recognize U.N. International Peace Day, with a 24-hour vigil on the weekend closest to the U.N. commemoration.

This year's vigil will begin at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, September 18 with activities and a procession around the Town Common. It will conclude with a many-languages Peace Pole ceremony from 12:45 to 1:00 on Sunday the 19th. The complete schedule includes many opportunities for dialog, music, poetry, crafts, food, and sharing of a common commitment to peace.

Learn more about the Peace Pole movement from the World Peace Prayer Society and find out about other commemorations on the Day of Peace site. For questions about the Bridgewater vigil, contact the church office or Betty Gilson.
