The Bishop will hold a special mass at the Hiroshima
Memorial Cathedral for World Peace at 4pm and then walk to Peace Memorial Park.

Others will gather at the recently restored Rest House visitor center in at 5:45pm.

There will be a moment of silent prayer at the Cenotaph to the A-bomb Vicitims at 6pm to the sounding of the Peace Bell. The city government and the Peace Memorial Museum have given permission to use the candle that Pope Francis used last year, that is usually in the lobby of the Museum.

The assembled people will then move to an area near the river, opposite the A-Bomb Dome, light candles and Koko Kondo, Rev. Kiyoshi Tanimoto’s daughter, will read the Pope’s Message of Peace.
