International Prayer for Peace - 2006 - Assisi

To mark the twentieth anniversary of the first Prayer for Peace convened in Assisi, Italy by Pope John Paul II, the Catholic lay organization Community of Sant'Egidio organized the second International Prayer for Peace to be held in 2006—after the first at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. in April—in Assisi in the event's traditional month of September. The theme was "For a World of Peace: Religions and Cultures in Dialogue." The forums were markedly global and less Eurocentric in scope as a whole.
