Bicton, Australia

An SOPP ceremony was held at the Point Walter Golf Club in Bicton, a suburb of Perth, with about 50 people in attendance. They began with a Welcome to Country address and the lighting of a Peace Candle. Participants joined in a flag ceremony to pray for peace in each country, carrying the flags along a special spiral-shaped path. Later, six prayer leaders shared songs, stories, and prayers for peace from different faiths and traditions, and the ceremony ended with songs and a circle dance.
