Can you spot Esmey Herscovitch RSCJ at the Respect Creation interfaith prayer vigil in Sydney’s Martin Place? The vigil was organised by the Faith Ecology Network which brings together people from eleven different faith traditions. Meditations and prayers were led by representatives from the Aboriginal, Anglican, Shia Muslim, Uniting Church, Sikh, Buddhist, Catholic, Jewish, Sunni Muslim, Quaker and Hindu communities. Chant, poems, songs and spoken prayers were used. The ‘Peace Angels’ embraced dance as a meditation. Over one hundred people participated in the Vigil. Some passing by were also welcomed and joined the event. For more information, visit the Faith Ecology Network website.
