All members of the Pax Christi USA family are invited to join us tonight for the last Pax Christi USA Community Weekly Advent Prayer Service, 8:30-9pm ET. Tonight we’ll be drawing from the readings from Wednesday of this 4th week of Advent and offering up a short reflection by Fr. Joe Nangle, OFM, Pax Christi USA Ambassador of Peace.
Join with members of the Pax Christi USA family from around the nation once more 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.
