The young people will gain a greater awareness of the Christian's call to work for world peace.
The young people should be able to describe how we can make God's concern for all people visible in the world.
Have the young people write an overview of what will happen during the week and why, which can be announced over the PA system.
Have the young people research quotations, Scripture readings, and prayers related to peace. Begin each day with a PA announcement or create a packet that can be used by teachers/catechists with their young people.
Design and wear buttons as a reminder of peace. The young people can create their own mottos, or they can use ones such as "Think Peace," "To Find Peace, Live in Justice" or "Give Peace a Chance."
Conduct an essay contest based on the topic "The Greatest Peacemaker I Know . . ." Invite the student body to participate. Have the young people advertise the contest, create the rules, choose the judges, and decide on appropriate awards for the winners.
Be sure to speak with your principal, catechetical leader, and faculty members in advance to invite their support and participation.
