All members of the Pax Christi USA family are invited to join us for the Pax Christi USA Community Weekly Advent Service, Mondays, 8:30-9pm ET, on Nov. 30, Dec. 7, 14, and 21. Join with members of the Pax Christi USA family from around the nation for a short prayer service with readings from our Advent-Christmas reflection booklet, the lighting of the Advent candles, and more.
The prayer service will be less than 30 minutes and serve as one way to help us all feel more connected during this time of pandemic isolation and social distancing, as well as to help us focus on our own participating in being the peace of Christ in a world shattered by violence, suffering and greed.
