Pray for peace today and every day
Barbados joins the rest of the world today in celebrating International Day of Peace. At midday, bells will signal the start of a minute's silence for peace, and the public and private sector have been asked to allow their staff to observe the period of silence at noon. Persons have also been asked to wear white and/or blue in support of the Day of Peace.
A peace march and rally organised by the Universal Day of Hope Trust, Barbados Association of Non-Governmental Organisations, Barbados National Peace Council and the African Methodist Episcopal Church will proceed from Jubilee Gardens at 3:30 p.m. to National Heores Square.
For those of you in Barbados, you can visit one of the following churches:
St. David's Anglican Church, St. James Parish Church, St. Stephen's Anglican Church, St. Leonard's Anglican, St. Michael's Cathedral (mass from 12:15 p.m.), St. Patrick's Roman Catholic Cathedral (mass at noon), and the Baha'i National Centre.
Peace be unto you all.
