All members of the Pax Christi USA family are invited to join us tonight for the Pax Christi USA Community Weekly Advent Prayer Service, which happens each Advent Monday, 8:30-9pm ET. Tonight we’ll be drawing from the readings from Saturday of this 3rd week of Advent and offering up a short reflection by Kim Mazyck, Director of Outreach and Partnerships with the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur. Kim worked for a long period with Catholic Relief Services, and has also spent time at Catholic Charities USA and Human Rights Watch and she is a graduate of Georgetown University. She previously also served on the Pax Christi USA National Council.
Join with members of the Pax Christi USA family from around the nation for this short evening prayer service with readings from this year’s special commemorative Advent-Christmas reflection booklet, the lighting of the Advent candles, and more.
The prayer service will be about 30 minutes, help connect us across the miles (even as we still struggle with the effects of the coronavirus pandemic), and focus us on the promise of Advent, Jesus, our Emmanuel, our “God-with-us”, coming with liberation and peace.
