Local Government Declares Day of Peace

San Rafael Dominicans Put Peace Ads in Local Theaters

MARIN COUNTY, CA.-- September 21, 2006 --Between screenings of Pirates of the Caribbean, Part 2 and Hollywoodland at the NorthGate Mall in San Rafael, the Dominicans Sisters promoted peace through a series of cinema advertisements. Peace: Because Good Planets are Hard to Find (a message from the Dominican Sisters of San Rafael) was shown 2,000 times from September 22 to October 2nd.

This was only part of their participation in the International Day of Prayer for Peace, September 21st.

At the opening of the third public observance of the International Day of Peace, held in front of the Dominican Sisters of San Rafael Center, Sister Susannah Malarkey, OP read a resolution from the Marin County Board of Supervisors, declaring September 21 a day of peace. Sister Marion Irvine, the congregation's Justice Promoter had accepted the resolution at a Board meeting earlier in the week.

A prayer service was attended by Sisters, staff, University students, Western region Justice promoters, local friends, and the kindergarten class of St. Raphael School
