World AIDS Day Prayer Vigil

World AIDS Day Prayer Vigil

40 Hours of Prayer and Remembrance

40 Hours of Prayer and Remembrance

I received this invitation from Susan Weissert of the Maryknoll Fathers and Brothers AIDS Task Force. I invite you too to participate in this prayer vigil, remembering those who have died, those who live with the disease, and those whose lives have been irrevocably changed by the pandemic and asking God’s help in finding a way to prevent and cure HIV/AIDS.

December 1 is World AIDS Day.

To commemorate this day and the 27 years since the AIDS pandemic began, we invite you to participate in our 40-Hours Prayer Vigil. This devotion will last from Sunday, November 30 at 7:00 PM to Noon, Tuesday, December 2.

To participate, e-mail with your Name, Location, and Day/Hour of Prayer (using Eastern Standard time). Please write 40-Hours in the Subject area of your e-mail.

Your name will be added to the list of participants from around the world who will offer one hour in prayer. Visit to see the list.

If you would like to receive action alerts on AIDS and other peace and social justice issues, please indicate that in your e-mail, too.

Peace and Advent blessings,

Susan Weissert
Maryknoll AIDS Task Force
