Albert Lincoln, Secretary-General of the Baha'i International Community will represent the Baha'is of the world at the Millennium World Peace Summit of Religious and Spiritual Leaders. The organizers of this World Peace have asked religious communities throughout the world to join in a Day of Prayer for World Peace on Monday, Aug. 28, the opening day of the summit.
Some of the basic principles of the Baha'i Faith are the oneness of God, the oneness of mankind and oneness of religion. World peace and the elimination of all prejudice are essential to the progress and development of communities through out the world.
In the spirit of mutual respect, religious cooperation and understanding the Baha'is of the Virgin Islands encourage all faith communities to say prayers for world peace on Monday, Aug. 28, (the opening day of the summit).
Faith communities are also encouraged to say prayers for world peace during their religious activities held over the weekend of Aug. 26 and 27.
The public is also invited to prayers for world peace at the monthly devotional meeting of the Baha'is of St. Thomas on Sunday, Aug. 27 at the National Baha'i Center at 129 Contant at 10 a.m.
