Sunday, Sept 25 at 12:30 pm Peace Day Celebration

Peace DayThe International Day of Peace (“Peace Day”) is observed around the world each year on 21 September. Established in 1981 by the United Nations, the General Assembly has declared this as a day devoted to “commemorating and strengthening the ideals of peace both within and among all nations and peoples.”

This year Patapsco Friends Meeting will celebrate Peace Day with an afternoon of peaceful dancing and poetry led by Peggy Adams.

“The Dances of Universal Peace are spiritual practice in motion. Drawing on the sacred phrases, scripture, and poetry of the many spiritual traditions of the earth, the Dances blend chant, live music and movement into a living experience of unity and peace.”

12:30pm- 2:00pm Dancing

2:30pm – 3:00pm Peace Poems (Bring your favorite poem to share)
