Peace Day Celebrations in Faisalabad

Lasallian schools across the Pakistani city of Faisalabad have held peace walks, special assemblies and music performances to mark the International Lasallian Days for Peace.

The celebrations in Pakistan are part of a global event from 21 September to 21 October and this year, the theme for the event is "Our Voices of Mercy are calling for Peace".

Lasallian schools and other workplaces around the world are holding community events, such as prayer services, weekly moments of reflection or projects of service to mark the International Lasallian Days for Peace which is now in its tenth year.

In Faisalabad, primary students at La Salle College gathered for a morning assembly this week, followed by a peace walk around the school, holding up banners marked with icons for peace including doves and olive branches.

Principal Br Shahzad Gill congratulated the students and spoke about the importance of peace in a multi-faith nation such as Pakistan and around the globe.

At La Salle Girls High school earlier this month, students also gathered for a special assembly to mark the International Lasallian Days for Peace.

Students and teachers distributed peace badges to each other and sang songs for peace.

After a moment of silence to promote peace, students and staff flew pigeons into the sky as a sign of peace and freedom.

Fellow Lasallian schools in Multan have also held a series of events to mark the International Lasallian Days for Peace, including special assemblies, music, dance and singing on the theme of peace and harmony.
