SANTA SABINA Once again, the Domincan Order will participate in the annual International Day of Prayer for Peace on September 21st. . A project of the United Nations, the day offers people of every faith tradition an oportunity to pause and pray for peace.

Promoters suggest public prayers such as processions, vigils and
simply standing in a public place. Any activity at all that invites
others is welcome and encouraged. Motherhouses may want to use already
scheduled prayer times or special added prayer vigils or holy hours.
Whatever way works, use it. Join the world wide Dominican Family
in this moment of peace and solidarity.
