Return to Peace Education

Prayer and Celebration

Throughout the year there are many days, both secular and religious, with a peace theme. Celebrating some or all of these will keep prayer for peace at the heart of your school’s liturgy and worship – and a reminder that peace is to be enjoyed and celebrated!
