The “One Minute for Peace” initiative was launched by the International Forum Catholic Action (IFCA), the Argentinian Catholic Action, the Italian Catholic Action, in support of the “Invocation for Peace” meeting, promoted by Pope Francis on June 2014 with the President of Israel (Simon Peres), the President of the Palestinian Authority (Maḥmūd ʿAbbās – Abu Mazen), and the Patriarch of Constantinople (Bartholomew I).
Since 2015, every year, “One Minute for Peace” has been promoted around the world on June 8 at 1.00 pm.
We ask all visitors to our website to encourage and propose to all those who care about peace, to believers and non-believers, a minute of prayer or silence. We can pray alone or in groups, in our homes or in the places of work or study.
Support this initiative by spending one minute on 8th June at 1.00 p.m.in prayer and increase the number of MINUTES FOR PEACE worldwide.
