Melbourne, Australia

The first SOPP ceremony in Melbourne was held at the Ivanhoe Uniting Church, with 33 people attending. 15 faiths were represented by prayers and ceremonial candles, along with a didgeridoo performance and acknowledgment of Australia’s Traditional Landowners, the Aboriginal people. The President of the Banyule Interfaith Network gave an address, after which the hosts performed peace songs. Participants sang “May peace prevail on Earth” to close the ceremony.
