Pax Christi Fremont calls for peace
Submitted By Toni Shellen
Pope Francis called for a Worldwide Day of Prayer for Peace in Syria, in the entire Mideast region, and throughout the whole world on Saturday, September 7, 2013. A group of concerned citizens of all faiths gathered on the steps of Mission San Jose to express their commitment to non-violence. Pax Christi joins with religious leaders around the world in calling for dialogue and negotiations as the only solution to the crisis in Syria. The gathering was done in the spirit of a prayerful vigil for peace, not a protest.
