It was an opportunity for those gathered to reflect on the need for peace both in our personal relationships with others, and on a global scale in regards to the relationships between nations. The march began at the Northern Alberta Railways Park just shortly after 11 a.m. and proceeded down 10 Street to Peace Park.

Acting mayor Bud Powell thanked those in attendance on behalf of city council. He said in a world with so much political and military strife, it is as important now as it ever was to continue to call and strive for peace.

The students from Notre Dame school then led those gathered through a recitation of a “Prayer for Peace,” and a rendition of a “Song for Peace.”

The ceremony concluded with the release of doves, an international symbol of peace.
