Peaceful Presence Gatherings on 11th of Every Month

Monthly Multifaith Prayers for Peace and Justice
7-7:30pm on 11th of every month

Sunday, August 11 - hosted by St. Mark's Episcopal Church, 600 Colorado Ave., Palo Alto - IN PERSON ONLY

Peaceful Presence is sometimes hosted in-person, sometimes by Zoom, and sometimes hybrid (with both options - to join in person or via Zoom). Watch for updates!

Multifaith Voices for Peace and Justice coordinates “Peaceful Presence” gatherings, a monthly prayer service on the evening of the 11th of each month, offering a time of quiet multifaith prayers for peace and justice and strength for the journey. Each gathering is hosted by a different local faith community, includes contributions from diverse faith traditions, and has its own format and theme.

All are welcome: those of all faith traditions and of no defined faith, those who are suffering at the hands of their own government, those who need a pause in the midst of intensive work on behalf of others, and all who would like to pray with others for the well-being of all.  The prayer time will include elements from several religious traditions.

Sunday, August 11 - hosted by St. Mark's Episcopal Church, 600 Colorado Ave., Palo Alto - IN PERSON ONLY
Wednesday, September 11 - annual Multifaith Picnic and Prayers, King's Plaza, Palo Alto; hosted by American Muslim Voice Foundation
Friday, October 11 - hosted by First Presbyterian Church, 1140 Cowper St., Palo Alto
