Germignaga, Italy

In Germignaga, near the Swiss border, close to 200 participants of all ages gathered for an SOPP ceremony. They opened with the sounds of crystal bowls, and then prayer leaders led participants in prayers from different faiths and traditions. Moving indoors due to rain, they held a prayer ceremony for peace in each country, with flags presented by a local Boy Scout group. The ceremony closed with the dedication of a large peace pole near Lake Maggiore.
