USF joins Fort Wayne in celebrating International Day of Peace
Sept. 10, 2013 FORT WAYNE, Ind.—The Just Peace organization of the University of Saint Francis will join the Peace and Justice Commission of Fort Wayne and Allen County, members of the Plymouth Congregational Church Peace and Justice Committee and Beacon Heights Church of the Brethren in hosting an inter-faith multi-cultural event on Saturday, Sept. 21 at 11:30 a.m. on the plaza at the Allen County Public Library, 900 Webster St., Fort Wayne.
The event is part of the 24-hour global observance of the International Day of Peace as designated by the United Nations in 2002. The theme for the year is “Who will you make peace with?” The public is invited and encouraged to participate.
In 2002, the United Nations General Assembly adopted a resolution designating Sept. 21 as International Day of Peace, so all peoples and organizations can observe a day of peace and nonviolence in an appropriate manner.
The University of Saint Francis, founded in 1890 as a comprehensive university in the Catholic Franciscan tradition, offers more than 80 undergraduate and graduate programs through the School of Health Sciences, School of Arts and Sciences, Keith Busse School of Business and Entrepreneurial Leadership, School of Professional Studies and School of Creative Arts. The university’s College of Adult Learning designs focused curriculum for working adults by offering online and accelerated programs, through its Virtual, Fort Wayne and Crown Point campuses. More than 2,400 students from a broad geographic region attend USF for its academic excellence.
