GIFU-CINCINNATI Sister City Committee
PEACE BELL CEREMONY
The city of Gifu declared itself the "Peace City" in 1988, when it celebrated the centennial of its incorporation. Gifu has worked on various projects to promote peace, praying for true permanent peace together with the people of the world.
One of these activities is the Peace Bell project. Gifu holds an event annually on July 9th to commemorate the tragedy of the war.
On the same day, we will observe a Peace Bell ceremony in Greater Cincinnati.
Please join us at the Hickory Shelter in Blue Ash Nature Park as we ring bells and pray for world peace along with the citizens of Gifu, our Sister City in Japan.
This year, we will add a special prayer for the people of Ukraine. The city of Kharkiv in Ukraine is one of Cincinnati’s Sister Cities.
