Members of churches from Brechin and Edzell gathered for a service at the Peace Pole in the grounds of Brechin Cathedral on Sunday September 21 to celebrate the International Day of Prayer for World Peace and United Nations Peace Day.
The service was led by Father David Mumford from St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church. Prayers were said that conflicts could be resolved without resorting to violence, particularly in the middle east. Nine out of 10 deaths in modern armed conflict are civilian and half of these are children. Innocent victims of war and those forced to become refugees were especially mentioned in the intercessions.
