40 Hours of Prayer & Remembrance

AS WE COMMEMORATE World AIDS Day on December 1, Maryknoll missioners around the world are working to combat the spread of the deadly disease while accompanying those affected by it.

We invite you to join us wherever you are in a worldwide 40-hour prayer vigil for an hour, anytime from 7 p.m., Monday, November 30 until noon, Wednesday, December 2.

To participate, please e-mail your name, location and hour of prayer (using EST) to mkinformation@maryknoll.org. Please write "AIDS Vigil" in the subject line of your e-mail.

This is our first AIDS prayer vigil since the Maryknoll AIDS Task Force, ably directed for ten years by former lay missioner Ms. Susan Weissert, was decommissioned earlier this year. The promotion of this global prayer has been taken up by the Washington, D.C.-based Maryknoll Office of Global Concerns. Their mailing address is:
