There are all sorts of things that church communities could do:-

  • Arrange a service or time of prayer during the week
  • Use some of the Pax Christi story resources to give voice to the experiences of young people in the Holy Land
  • If you have students or young people in your area from the Holy Land invite them to a social evening – offering them time to share their stories

Pax Christi have downloadable resources Pax Christi Resources

Their website also contains links to all sorts of other resources and ideas that could be used.
