Lenten solidarity with people of Syria

As Lent 2014 begins, Pax Christi International is launching a worldwide campaign, “Encountering Peace,” to express solidarity with the people of Syria and to promote a negotiated solution to the extreme crisis gripping that country.

As Pax Christi members around the world “encounter” in solidarity the people of Syria who are devastated by ongoing violence, we will fast and pray and advocate for an end to the violence and for a successful “encounter for peace” at the negotiations table.

The Encountering Peace Campaign will take place from 5 March to 20 April 2014, to coincide with the Christian observance of Lent. In addition to prayer and fasting by individuals, Pax Christi member organisations are encouraged to organise opportunities for prayer, education, fasting and action in parishes, schools and religious communities.
