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 read Ron Cruz’s reflection.
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:
- John Bagley, long-time member and leader with Pax Christi Illinois;
- Helen Casey, former co-coordinator for Pax Christi Michigan and past member of the Pax Christi USA National Council;
- Gordon Zahn, one of our co-founders who also helped to uncover and then popularize the story of Blessed Franz Jaeggerstaetter.
