The Franciscan family in Belgium is leading an effort to ring bells for peace on October 4th at 2pm, “the hour of the Friday Prayer of Muslims. In commemoration of the 800th anniversary of the inspiring meeting of Saint Francis of Assisi and Sultan Al Kamil of Egypt, with this ringing of bells we want to express solidarity and worldwide connectedness.”

Additionally, this effort includes an invitation to religious communities to come together with other communities of another religion to simply meet each other in peace. In different Belgian cities, Muslims and Christians will come together to meet each other. Already 170 actions in 13 different countries worldwide are registered.
