A Video Introduction to Venezuela
Sunday, November 28 begins the fifth annual Dominican Month for Peace.
After joining forces to help our Dominican family in Colombia, Democratic Republic of Congo, India, and Ukraine, we now turn our attention to Venezuela – the country with the largest oil reserves on the planet, but for more than two decades, has been going through the greatest political, social, and economic crisis in its history. For Venezuela, we pray.
1st Sunday Advent – November 28 — In this first week of Advent, we prepare ourselves to wait for you, Lord, to receive you with joy. Today we pray that your light casts away the shadows surrounding the people of Venezuela. May they live in freedom, with justice and peace.
3rd Sunday Advent – December 12 — Come, Lord. Wrap us in your light, warm us in your love!
