International World Day of Prayer for Peace and Healing Friday, 9/21 At Noon

FORT BRAGG, Calif. — September 13, 2012 — The community is invited to join the Chaplaincy Program of Mendocino Coast District Hospital for the annual International World Day of Prayer for Peace and Healing on Friday, September 21 at noon in the hospital courtyard by the new patient registration building.

According to the Reverend Tanya Wyldflower, MCDH Chaplain Coordinator, this is a special time once a year when members of the various faith communities on the Coast join together in an hour of music and prayer/meditation for peace and healing for our World.

“For over a decade, this sacred celebration has united participants throughout the world for a time of faith and pure oneness of spirit,” says Wyldflower. “This is an opportunity to contemplate and experience the desire for peace that we share together.”

Wyldflower notes that the global celebration is rooted in a UN General Assembly Resolution calling for, “…a day of global ceasefire and nonviolence, an invitation to all nations and people to honor a cessation of hostilities for the duration of the Day.”

Community members who would like to participate with music, prayer or meditation are invited to call the Reverend Tanya Wyldflower, MCDH Chaplain Coordinator at 961-1234 extension 208 for more information.
