Rev. Catie is leading us this year – come along if you can! Your investment allows the Peace Institute to continue to meet the needs of families and communities impacted by murder, trauma, grief and loss, while also assisting citizens returning from prison – such inspiring vision AND action, cultivating cycles of peace instead of cycles of violence! Please help – make Mother’s Day even more special!

Celebratory Lunch
After the event, walkers will return to First Parish for a lunch honoring First Parish’s contribution to and involvement in the event. The lunch is timed to coincide with the end of the service, approximately 11:30am.

For parishioners staying in Needham, the service will include elements that will keep you engaged and mindful of the walk and its objectives. After the service, come to Social Hour to celebrate!

The Mother’s Day Walk for Peace (MDW4P) is a beloved 27-year-long Boston tradition and celebration of our potential to create more peaceful communities. It is our largest fundraising event to grow and sustain our services, advocacy and training. Our goal is to empower survivors, Generation Peace and communities impacted by murder, trauma, grief and loss to cultivate cycles of peace and healing.
