Day of Peace

Holy Spirit Peace and Justice/ Pax Christi USA
is sponsoring a special public event in celebration of
International Peace Day.

September 21, 2006

In the Spirit of Peace, Humanity and World Understanding,
the public is invited for an evening of shared prayer, information exchange and community building with the local Muslim community.

The event will begin at 7:15PM on
Thursday, September 21, 2006
at the Mosque (Masjid)
located at 1910 Elsham in Edinburg.

The Mosque is located one block north of Dove Ave., on Jackson Rd.
behind the Jackson Village – between Dove and Alberta Rd., on Jackson Rd.

We will begin with Maghrib prayer, the 4th prayer of the day. After prayer there will be a power point presentation to learn about Islam and Muslims, some discussion on current political and other issues regarding Islam and time for a question and answer discussion. We are especially grateful to our Muslim brothers and sisters for the opportunity to visit their Mosque.

Clothing requirements will be observed in respect for the Masjid. For information regarding appropriate clothing and because of limited seating, anyone interested in attending should contact Mark or Michelle Peña at or (956) 380-3731, to reserve a spot.

This event takes on a renewed urgency now that the Pope has essentially called Islam and its founder evil. The whole hierarchy is as corrupted as the inside of a coffin from Rome down to Brownsville and Holy Spirit Parish. It is up to us to keep the flame lit until the institutional church regains its senses and spirit. Please attend this event and apologize for our hierarchy.
