The Christmas celebrations 2007 will again take place in a difficult climate for all peoples in the Holy Land. Nonetheless, many individuals and groups refuse to give up, and are searching for non-violent ways to voice their rights and work for a peaceful and just future for both peoples.


This initiative invites you to email Advent and Christmas wishes, and prayers for peace to our friends in Bethlehem.


Messages can be submitted on Pax Christi's website or sent by e-mail


English is the preferred language; however, non-native English speakers may also send wishes and prayers in their mother tongue.


Pax Christi International, the International Fellowship of Reconciliation, Church and Peace, the Justice and Peace Commission of Jerusalem, the Presidency of the Conference of European Justice and Peace Commissions, as well as the Asian Center for the Progress of Peoples are supporting this initiative which has been put forth by other partners in Palestine - the Arab Educational Institute, Library on Wheels for Nonviolence and Peace, the Centre for Conflict Resolution and Reconciliation and Wi'am Center.


Please e-mail your Christmas messages and prayers for peace before 25 December.
