Instruments of Hope invites all to come and experience the pathway of peace at the Francis of Assisi Sculpture Garden in observance of this year's International Day of Peace on Sunday, September 20.

Enjoy a peaceful contemplative walk through the beautiful wooded garden pathways. Members from “Threshold Choir Group” will be singing along the walk in the woods.

Sculptor Mic Carlson’s 11 foot International Peace Statue of Francis leaping over the world will grace the garden. Friends and family are invited to leave an inspiring message of peace at the foot of this sculpture.

Arrive in the garden starting at 1 p.m. to walk the lush winding pathways. Visitors can stop along the way to meditate on a bench and observe the lovely statues and storyboards surrounded by trees, plants and wildlife. The changing landscape is a vision of joy and it is our hope guests will experience much peace in this wondrous wooded garden.

At 2 p.m. all are welcome to gather at the Dominican Center’s Chapel for the Institute for Global Education-sponsored International Day of Peace gathering.

The Francis of Assisi Sculpture Garden is located on the west wooded grounds of the Dominican Center at Marywood at 2025 East Fulton Street.
