This is the second year the Day of Peace has been held in Penrith.
It promotes respect and peaceful interfaith dialogue, and acknowledges that all people and all religions share a common desire for peace, security and dignity. It also encourages understanding, cooperation and good relations between organisations and people of different faiths within our community.
The Day of Peace is an initiative of Council’s Multifaith Working Group, and celebrates the United Nations’ International Day of Peace. The 2018 theme is ‘The Right to Peace’.
Council’s Penrith Multifaith Peace Group was established in 2016 and includes representatives from over 20 churches, faiths and organisations from the local Penrith area.
