All members of the Pax Christi USA community are invited to join us for the Pax Christi USA Community Weekly Advent Prayer Service, Mondays, 8:30-9pm ET, on Nov. 28, Dec. 5, 12, and 19. Join with members of the Pax Christi USA family from around the nation for a short evening prayer service with readings from this year’s Advent-Christmas reflection booklet, the lighting of the Advent candles, and more.
The prayer service will be less than 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 the promise of liberation and peace.
Programs for each weekly prayer service will be posted on the day of:
