Bishops of England and Wales encourage support for ‘Peace Sunday’

Peace Dove

Sunday 19th January will see the Church throughout the world pray together for peace.  Peace Sunday is an annual event and this year Pope Francis asks us to focus on a culture of fraternity within the world; recognising those around us as our brothers and sisters.  As such, the theme this year is to be “Living as one family is the foundation and pathway to peace”.  You can read Pope Francis message for Peace Sunday here.

Pax Christi, a charity working for peace, justice and respect for human rights, has made resources available to every parish in England and Wales.  You can download resources for Peace Sunday Liturgy and a Prayer Card by visiting their website below.
