3rd Annual Philadelphia Interfaith Walk For Peace & Reconciliation
Sunday, June 4, 2006 at 1:00 p.m. (Gather at 12:30pm 3rd/Jefferson)

Prayers for Peace, Prayers for Unity
We invite all people of all faiths to join us on a spiritual journey. We will begin at Al-Aqsa Mosque (1501 Germantown Ave. near 3rd and Jefferson St. above Girard Ave.) with a gathering at 12:30 PM and ritual program starting at 1:00 PM. We will then proceed to St. Peter’s Church (5th and Girard Ave.), to Christ Church (2nd above Market St.), past Independence Mall (6th and Market St.), and then to our final stop at Society Hill Synagogue (5th and Spruce St.). As we walk we will lament war and the loss of life. We will pray for the safety and freedom of all people. We will embrace hope, not fear. The true pathway to peace is God’s desire for love and justice. Join us to show that peace between people of all faiths is possible. Let us call out Salaam. Let us call out Shalom. Let us call out Peace in the language of Love.

During the Peace Walk, buses and vans will be available to drive people who are physically unable to walk. The buses also will shuttle people to their cars between the Al-Aqsa Mosque and Society Hill Synagogue before or after the walk, as needed. (Note that parking is limited at the synagogue location; therefore, people are encouraged to park at Al-Aqsa Mosque and take advantage of the shuttle at the end of the Walk.) PLEASE WEAR WHITE (OR AT LEAST WHITE SHIRTS) Bring water or snacks. Banners/signs are limited to say the words: “Salaam, Shalom, Peace.” NO POLITICAL BANNERS
