INTER FAITH WEEK OF PRAYER FOR WORLD PEACE (11-18th October)
The 8 days from the 2nd to the 3rd Sunday in October each year, are kept as an occasion when members of all faiths focus their prayers on world peace.
It was a Christian initiative in 1974 that led to the founding of the Week of Prayer for World Peace. It only took a few years for it to become an interfaith activity. People of all faith traditions or none, are now welcomed.
Each day of the week is given a theme:
Sunday Celebrating Unity
Monday Environment and Climate Change
Tuesday Sharing our resources
Wednesday Animals and Insects
Sunday Working Together with Courage
