Prayer Gathering

Once a year WIFA observes the Week of Prayer for World Peace, an international event which takes place on the second to third Sundays in October. People from all faiths and none come together to offer thoughts and prayers for peace in our world. The WPWP gatherings were held first at the Friends Meeting House and later at the Watford Peace Garden. During the pandemic, WIFA held regular prayer meetings online before its interfaith discussions. In the last few years WIFA organized various vigils to support victims of terrorist attacks or natural disasters around the world. Representatives of different faiths and Watford residents come together in the Peace Garden to offer prayers and sympathy to those afflicted. There were vigils for the terrorist attacks in Paris, Christchurch, (New Zealand) and Sri Lanka, the war in Ukraine and for the earthquakes in Turkey and Syria just to name a few.
