SHARE

On Sunday, Feb. 7, the Pascack Reformed Church of Park Ridge welcomed visitors from Peace Island Institute. Founded in 2003 as an interfaith dialogue forum, the institute’s mission is to create understanding and peace among individuals of different ethnic and cultural backgrounds.

By striving to create ‘islands of peace’ around the world, the institute seeks to facilitate unity for building peace, education to eradicate ignorance and bias, and welfare to fight against poverty and hunger. Meryem Teke of PII opened worship at Pascack Reformed Church with an introduction to the mission of the Peace Island Institute, and later shared a prayer from the prophet Muhammad.
