All friends, partners and members of the Pax Christi USA family are invited to join us tonight, Monday, March 8th, for our third Pax Christi USA Community Weekly Lenten Prayer Service, from 8:30-9pm ET. Join with members of the Pax Christi USA family from around the nation for a short prayer service with readings from our Lenten reflection booklet, Scripture readings, prayers of the faithful, and more. This week, we’ll be specially remembering Fr. Bob Jones of Pax Christi Southern California and giving thanks for his life and witness.
Our prayer service will be less than 30 minutes and serve as another 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 participation in being the peace of Christ in a world shattered by violence, suffering and greed. We’re especially grateful to have Pax Christi USA Ambassador of Peace and Executive Director of Jubilee USA Eric LeCompte join us to share a short reflection from this year’s Lenten reflection booklet. Gather on the call with your families, loved ones, and local groups; all are welcome!
The schedule for each evening will include:
- Litany of Repentance
- Scriptural readings from one of the upcoming days of the current week of Lent
- A reflection from this year’s Lenten reflection booklet
- Prayers of the faithful
- Closing prayer
- (Optional) Breakout rooms for discussion and sharing immediately following the prayer service for those who would like to stay on
