Celebrate the Summer Solstice with local faith communities for World Peace and Prayer Day.
Folks will meet at 4:00 p.m. at the Allegheny Landing Park on the North Shore next to the Andy Warhol Bridge.
Musical instruments and talents are welcome to share with the community. The gathered throng will then walk over the Allegheny River to offer our collective prayers and intentions for our rivers and sacred waters. The group will gather, enter and exit the bridge from the North Shore at Allegheny Landing park at Sandusky Street.
Following the prayers and intentions on the bridge, the group will return to the Allegheny Landing for more song and prayer.
4-6:30 at Allegheny Landing Park. Please sign up with Action Network:
The Pittsburgh gathering will stand in solidarity with the 24th annual World Peace and Prayer Day in Cincinnati, a multi-cultural honoring of sacred sites envisioned by the spiritual leader of the Lakota Sioux, Chief Arvol Looking Horse.
World Peace and Prayer Day promotes the unity and security that comes from mutual concern, care and respect. This will be a time to gather, to share what we know, to listen to each other’s stories and to stand and pray together in right relationship with one another—and with our Mother Earth.
