Day of Peace

The International Day of Peace was established in 1981 by UN Resolution 36/67. Since September 2001, September 21 has been set by the UN as an annual day of non-violence and ceasefire. This year, and each year since 2004, the World Council of Churches has called churches and parishes to observe September 21 as the International Day of prayer for peace. In keeping with the practice, a Day of Prayer for Peace will be celebrated at Grace Church, Vineyard Haven, on Saturday, September 21, beginning at 4 pm.
