We just wanted to let you know that on 16th January it will be Pax Christi Peace Sunday. Some of you are already probably busy preparing to celebrate it in your parishes! As the Holy Father just reminded us in his address on Jan 1 (World Day of Peace), while the passage into the New Year was marked by episodes of discrimination, violence and religious intolerance, the path to peace can only be achieved through religious freedom. Peace Sunday is a great occasion to remind us all of the importance of peace in our lives.
The Pax Christi website is packed with ideas and resources to help you plan: www.paxchristi.org.uk/PeaceSunday.html, including a liturgy booklet, a leaflet and a prayer card. We hope as many parishes as possible will be supportive of this wonderful initiative!
