On November 11, 2011, some of Edmonton’s local churches and individual Christians will gather to remember, reflect and pray for all victims of war and for peace in our world. There will be an Interdenominational Prayer Service at McDougall United Church (10025 – 101 Street) at 6:00 p.m. Then at 7:00 p.m., participants will gather at City Hall in downtown Edmonton for a Public Prayer Walk for Peace.

The prayer service and prayer walk are sponsored by Mennonite Central Committee – Alberta and the Edmonton Ecumenical Peace Network (www.eepeacenetwork.org) and organized by Holyrood Mennonite Church along with Edmonton Quakers, and First Mennonite Church.

All are welcome to the Prayer Service and the Prayer Walk for Peace.

For more information, please check out www.edmontonprayerwalk.org or contact Scott Key at (780) 435-9960 or scott.key@kingsu.ca.

The Edmonton Ecumenical Peace Network is a community of Christians from different denominations who believe that violence and war are incompatible with the teaching of Jesus and are learning together how to practice this conviction in their daily lives.
