Press Communiqué: Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue, 06.02.2018

As is known, during the Angelus prayer on Sunday 4 February, His Holiness Pope Francis announced that Friday 23 February will be a Day of prayer and fasting for peace, in particular for the populations of the Democratic Republic of the Congo and South Sudan.

The Holy Father also invited the members of other religions to join in the initiative, in the forms they consider most suitable. The Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue, aware that religions can contribute greatly to obtaining and consolidating peace, will be grateful to the brothers and sisters of other religions who wish to heed this appeal and to live moments of prayer, fasting and reflection in accordance with their own tradition and in their own places of worship.
