    On August 18, Mayor Park attended the Mass for Peace and Reconciliation on the Korean Peninsula at Myeongdong Cathedral.

    The mass was concelebrated by Pope Francis and a group of priests from the Vatican. In attendance were Rev. Kim Geun-sang, Primate of the Anglican Church of Korea, the heads of seven religious denominations, a group of elderly “comfort women,” who were forced into sexual slavery by the Japanese military in the early 1900s, and about 1,700 Catholics, who all prayed for peace and prosperity on the Korean Peninsula.
