Hongwanji churches to mark Peace Day

Hongwanji churches on Maui will have Peace Day displays through September.

They will also participate in the virtual “Ring Your Bell for Peace” event, sponsored by Honpa Hongwanji Mission of Hawaii, on Sept. 21.

Maui United Buddhist Women’s Associations will be setting up displays to observe Peace Day and participate in the bell-ringing.

Lahaina Hongwanji Buddhist Temple has set up yard signs along with a peace banner and has also partnered with local businesses to distribute origami cranes to their customers to promote Peace Day.
