Aspen organizational gathering set for World Peace and Prayer Day

Staff report

An organizational meeting to hold a local World Peace and Prayer Day is set for 4 to 6 p.m. Friday at the meeting room in the Pitkin County Library.

“Our local group would join in prayer and ceremony with the gathering in New York along the Hudson River (June 19-22) by joining together on the Summer Solstice in Carbondale,” reads a statement from the organizers.

World Peace and Prayer Day, also known as Honoring Sacred Sites Day, was envisioned and brought forth by Chief Looking Horse as a day to join worldwide communities and people of all races, ages, genders and faiths, who share concern for the welfare of the Earth and humanity, according to the organizers of Friday’s meeting.
