Iraq Coordinating Committee: Join Pax Christi in its Prayer Chain -- Thank the US Bishops

RIVER FOREST, IL - The Iraq Coordinating Committee is asking congregational and province Justice Promoters to invite their members to participate in an Advent Prayer Chain for Peace in Iraq. Also, members are encouraged to send a Christmas letter of thanks to their local bishop for the statement made by the US Bishops on the situation in Iraq.

Sponsored by Pax Chriisti, the Advent program is a 24 hour prayer chain. You can participate by selecting a time to join the prayer. It is that easy. Communities are encouraged to pray together.

This is how it works: Starting the week after Thanksgiving, there will be a calendar on the Pax Christi USA web site where they will list the individuals and groups which are praying for peace in Iraq on the days and at the time that they have committed to undertake their prayer and witness. Time slots will be divided into hour increments; groups wishing to do multiple time slots are welcome to do so. Please check the calendar and, if possible, consider signing up for a slot that is still open.

Please sign up on Pax Christi's website for a prayer time.

Thank your bishop for the Statement on Iraq, calling for dialogue on a responsible withdrawal of troops.

"...We hope our nation has moved beyond the divisive rhetoric of the recent campaign and the shrill and shallow debate that distorts reality and reduces the options to “cut and run” versus “stay the course.”
