Multi-faith prayer week in lead-up to bicentenary
Two weeks before the Bahá’í community celebrates the Twin Holy Birthdays this year, various religious communities will celebrate the Week of Prayer for World Peace. This offers an opportunity for Bahá’ís not only to pray for peace alongside fellow citizens, but also to raise consciousness amongst others of the bicentenary of the Birth of the Báb.
The Week of Prayer for World Peace will be observed in New Zealand between 13th and 20th October this year.
A leaflet has been produced by the New Zealand organising committee with prayers, readings and affirmations from many faiths to use each day. The theme of the leaflet is developed for worldwide distribution by the Week of Prayer for World Peace multi-faith committee based in Great Britain.
Religious communities and interfaith groups throughout New Zealand are encouraged to celebrate the Week both in their own observances and together with people of different faiths.
