This day of prayer was organized by the Canadian Catholic Organization for Development and Peace-Caritas Canada, and it is part of a larger campaign called "Syria: Peace is Possible.” 

In addition to the Canadian day of prayer on the feast day of St. Francis of Assisi, the Holy See has also announced that an international and ecumenical day of prayer will be held at the end of the month, October 31. The upcoming day of prayer will be for peace throughout the Middle East.
