The International Day of Peace was established by a United Nations resolution in 1981, and was first celebrated September 1982. This day provides an opportunity for individuals, organizations and nations to create practical acts of Peace on a shared date.
In celebration of love, peace, and tolerance, our church sponsors a Peace Day Festival in Rockport every year. Activities include art, music, song, dance, drama, poetry, puppetry, story telling, and children’s activities.
Individuals and Nations, acting in concert, DO make a difference in the quality of our lives, our institutions, our environment and our planetary future. Through cooperation, we manifest the essential Spirit that unite us amid our diverse ways.
