Ring Your Bell for Peace Day (online event)

Event details

  • Monday | September 21, 2020
  • 11:40 am - 12:15 pm

In the spirit of promoting Peace Day in Hawaii and throughout the world, Honpa Hongwanji Mission of Hawaii invites the world to join in ringing bells for Peace Day on September 21, 2020!

In this event streamed live on the Internet, Bishop Eric Matsumoto will lead a minute of silence at 12 noon, honoring all those who have sacrificed for the achievement of peace. At 12:01 p.m., young people will ring bells from their local temples, churches, schools, and community organizations.

We have set 11:40 a.m. as the time in this calendar item, as a short program prior to the minute of silence is anticipated.

The public is invited to watch the bell ringing live online on the KTUH Facebook page (a Facebook account should not be necessary to view the video).

For more information or if you would like to register to ring your bell on Zoom, please see hongwanjihawaii.com/peaceday2020.
