World Day of Peace celebrated at Franciscan Renewal Center

World Day of Peace

About 350 people attended the recent World Day of Peace celebration at the Casa at Franciscan Renewal Center in Paradise Valley.

Those who attended the celebration took time to pose in the shape of a huge heart to signify “Peace Within Our Heart.”

An Interfaith prayer service followed the photo with a candlelight procession into the church.

The Casa Peace Award was presented to Father John Hardin, OFM. Paradise Valley Mayor Michael Collins attended and presented the Casa with a Proclamation for Peace Day.
