World Peace Day Interfaith Service

Beginning in 2005 the interfaith community of Naperville and surrounding areas have gathered at the beginning of each year to pray for world peace and celebrate our rich diversity. These interfaith prayer services are held on the first Sunday of the new year and usually take place on the campus of North Central College.  There are many faith communities that co-sponsor this event including: Jewish, Christian, Muslim, Christian Scientists, Buddhist, Unitarian Universalists, Baha'i, Hindu, Sikh, Latter Day Saints and a number of interfaith organizations.
