Pax Christi members marked Ash Wednesday with acts of penitence and witness around the country as we have done for over 30 years.
In London, there was a vigil of resistance and repentance at the Ministry of Defence. The liturgy and witness is undertaken in respectful opposition to the MoD’s preparations for the deployment of nuclear weapons. See HERE for more details

In Coventry there was an Ash Wednesday Action beginning at the foot of the Old Cathedral steps, organised by Pax Christi members and friends.
