World Day of Peace Masses

Archdiocese of Cincinnati holds Mass in Celebration of the 50th World Day of Peace

Pope Francis has announced that the theme for the World Day of Peace is "Nonviolence: A Style of Politics for Peace." In recognizing this theme, the Archdiocese of Cincinnati will recognize at these liturgies ministries which exemplify nonviolent approaches to conflict at various levels of society. They will include peacemaking efforts for the family, interfaith relations, racial reconciliation in the city, civil discourse in our nation, nonviolent strategies for global disputes, and greater harmony with the natural environment.
