Peace Sunday

Peace Sunday, January 16, 2011

Whatever you do, it would be worth letting people know about Peace Sunday the week before (Sunday 9th January).  A simple notice in the newsletter (based on the text at the back of this booklet) or a mention at Mass would be ideal.  Order the prayer card, or the Pax Christi leaflet, and arrange to have these given out as people leave Mass on Peace Sunday.  Display the poster in the church porch.

Afterwards, let us know how your parish celebrated Peace Sunday 2011. We can share your ideas with others.  Email us at info@paxchristi.org.uk or write to the office.

19 January marks the start of Christian Unity Week with the theme One in the Apostles’ teaching, fellowship, breaking of bread (cf Acts 2.42) http://www.ctbi.org.uk

Please consider taking a collection to support the work of Pax Christi, the International Catholic Movement for Peace.
