Press Release -- Interfaith Prayer Circle
Sun., Oct. 31, 2 pm

Octagon State Memorial, off West Main at 33rd St., is the site of an interfaith prayer circle led by Friends of the Mounds October 31 at 2:00 pm.

Sunday, October 31 and Monday, November 1 are "golf-free days" at Octagon State Memorial, which also contains a leased golf course. Members of many Native American spiritual traditions, along with those of immigrant traditions including Christian, Jewish, and Buddhist have been formally gathering once or twice each year since 2000 for a time of prayer.

Participants are invited to come join the prayer circle and speak or not in turn, as you are moved, according to your own sacred traditions. We join our spoken, sung, and silent prayers together at this ancient and significant site, noted as one of the "70 Wonders of the Ancient World" along with Stonehenge, the Pyramids, Athens' Parthenon, and only Chaco Canyon and Cahokia in North America.
