Join Pax Christi USA members from around the U.S. for tonight’s Weekly Lenten Prayer Service, from 8:30-9pm ET. These 30 minute prayer services include readings from this year’s Lenten reflection booklet and reflections from the authors, Scripture readings, prayers of the faithful, and more. Tonight we’ll be joined by special guest Beatrice Parwatikar, Pax Christi USA Ambassador of Peace, who will read Sr. Mary Evelyn Jegen’s reflection and offer a few additional words to expand on it to address the context we’re living in today.
This Lent, as we celebrate our 50th anniversary, at each of these prayer services, we’re remembering those who co-founded and built our community but have passed on to join that great cloud of witnesses. Tonight, we’re remembering:
- Sr. Mary Evelyn Jegen, SNDdeN, founding member, former National Coordinator, Pax Christi USA Teacher of Peace;
- Nancy McDonald, long-time member and leader with Pax Christi Florida;
- Fr. Robert Jones, long-time member of Pax Christi Southern California
