Sep 6, 2016 MERCY – The Heart of Peace Interfaith Meeting of Prayer for Peace

The Cathedral of Christ the Light Event Center
2121 Harrison St., Oakland, CA 94612

Mercy: the Heart of Peace will continue the movement that has inspired many men
and women of religion to gather together to pray for peace since the first meeting,
called by Pope John Paul II, in Assisi in 1986. Thirty years after the first meeting,
the Spirit of Assisi reaches the West Coast of the United States in the Diocese of
Oakland. The Meeting will embody the message that peace lies at the heart of
religion, and that believers are called to be peacemakers and instruments of mercy.

Prayer for Peace (5:45 pm): Five spaces provided for Judaism, Islam, Christianity,
Hinduism and Buddhism. Panel Dialogue on “Mercy: the Heart of
Peace” (6:30 pm) will include representatives of Christianity, Judaism
and Islam, followed by a Q&A opportunity.

The evening concludes with a Procession and Appeal for Peace (8:00 pm).
