The Princeton-based Coalition for Peace Action (CFPA) will have a three-part Holiday Peace Gathering on Dec. 14 in Princeton.
The gathering begins with a Candlelight Vigil for Peace on Earth on Dec. 14 from 5-6 p.m. on the sidewalk adjacent to Nassau Street in front of Palmer Square in Princeton.
Some battery powered candles will be available, but attendees are encouraged to bring their own.
A Potluck for Peace will follow the Vigil from 6-7 p.m. in the Assembly Room (enter at right rear of building) of Nassau Presbyterian Church, 61 Nassau St., directly across the street from Palmer Square.
Those bringing dishes may drop them off at the church starting at 4:30 p.m. However, attendees are asked not to stay parked at the church afterwards, so it is available for the church’s programs.
Following the Potluck there will be a Peace Program from 7-8:30 p.m., also in the Assembly Room, which will feature honoring Irene Etkin Goldman on her 20th anniversary as CFPA board chair.
Contributions to honor Goldman can be made at peacecoalition.org.
The Program will also include Music for Peace presented by David Brahinsky and Sharleen Leahey.
All three events—the Vigil, Potluck, and Program—are free and open to the public. Those interested are encouraged to come to any one or combination of the three events.
“We warmly welcome all those wanting to participate in this three-part holiday event, whether or not they are CFPA members or have previously attended our events,” said Rev. Robert Moore, CFPA executive director.
“For the Program, we are thrilled to be honoring the outstanding leadership of Irene Goldman as CFPA board chair for 20 years. We also are pleased that such talented musicians will present peaceful music and encourage all interested people to join us.”
