The International Ecumenical Peace Convocation (IEPC) begins

The IEPC opens to a symbolic inauguration in the premises of the University of West Indies, Kingston, Jamaica. One thousand participants from all over the world representing Churches, Ecumenical Organisations and Civil Society networks will converge in Kingston to reflect on concerns relating to Peace, conflicts and violence. The 8 day observance will bring the curtains down on the decade long program of the World Council of Churches to overcome violence urging Churches and Ecumenical Organisations to start afresh, with new configurations and renewed vision. To this effect the Convocation will receive and adopt an ecumenical call for just peace.

On Sunday the 22nd May 2011 the IEPC participants will join Christians and peace activists all over the world in praying together for Peace. The organisers have made arrangements for online participation in the IEPC events. Connect here for more information on IEPC and Peace Sunday
