Each year an International Day of Peace is observed around the world. The General Assembly of the United Nations has declared this as a day, September 18, 2019, devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, both within and among all nations and people.

Sister Barbara Mass led the Peace Prayer Service at the Living Word Center which included some of the children from the Montessori school in Arlington Heights. They all made Pinwheels for Peace with the help of the Sisters and attendees of the Prayer Service and “planted” them on the grounds of the Living Word Center.
