The Ecumenical Center hosts International Day of Peace celebrations Thursday (Sept. 23).
At noon, Thomas Bolin, associate professor of religious studies at St. Norbert College, will give a lecture on “World Religions” and attendees will receive a free lunch.
At 7 p.m., participants including international students will offer an International Prayer for Peace sharing meaningful messages in various languages from German to Japanese while singing well-know tunes such as Imagine, Give Peace a Chance and others.
Adi Redzic of the EC says, “Cutting through the day-to-day noise and negativity while celebrating what matters the most lies at heart of this celebration. The events will conclude with a concert given by the band “Today’s Yesterdays” and food.
All events are held at the Ecumenical Center, they are free and open to everyone.”
