Time for peace in Nashua
March 22, 2013 by James
The Fifth Annual Peace Conference takes place this weekend in co-operation with the New Hampshire Peace Action and features a renowned keynote speaker, Rev. John Dear, S.J.
The theme for this year’s event is ‘Promoting International Peace and Security’, and it would not be surprising if brochure and poster printing had been used to promote this peaceful event.
Dear was nominated by Archbishop Desmond Tutu for a Nobel Peace Prize and is the author and editor of more than 28 books based on ‘Living Peace’, which focus on peace and non-violence.
Published by Doubleday, ‘Living Peace’ sold many copies and inspired many of his other works. Dear is a peace activist, a retreat leader, and he also holds lectures and speaks on the books he has written. Throughout this event there will be workshops and seminars, available at no cost, for which people can sign up on the day of the event. There are a number of presenters involved with the various workshops and seminars and a list is available on the website.
There is no cost associated with this event and the public is invited to attend. A lunch will be available at a small cost. The Fifth Annual Peace Conference will be held tomorrow, March 23, starting at 9:00 am at the Rivier University located at 420 S. Main Street in Nashua, New Hampshire. To check out the workshop times and schedule, please visit the Rivier Education website’s ‘peace conference’ page or call the Rivier University during normal business hours.
