Christmas 2019

Merry Christmas to all!

We wish you peace and blessings this Christmas season and New Year. We continue to give thanks for all people who work to build a world of justice and peace. We pray for people on the move, for those experiencing the consequences of climate change, and for courageous action to protect all vulnerable life on earth. We pray for peace in our world.  

Thank you for being a part of the mission of this office. We are grateful for your commitment to be light in the world. May we all find hope and renewal in the celebration of Christ's birth – Emmanuel, God with us.  

During the Season of Christmas, we invite you to read reflections on Christmas Scripture readings by Maryknoll missioners.  

As we begin the New Year, we invite you to consider participating in Ecumenical Advocacy Days in Washington, D.C. April 24-27, which this year will focus on the intersection of climate change and economic justice. It is a wonderful way to join with other Christians in raising your voice to address the concerns of our time.
