World AIDS Day, observed on December 1st each year, is an important opportunity when governments, national AIDS programs, faith organizations, community organizations, and individuals around the world bring attention to the global AIDS epidemic and emphasize the critical need for a committed, meaningful and sustained response.
World AIDS Day Service
This year’s liturgy focuses our hearts and minds on reaching the goal of ‘Zero AIDS-related deaths, Zero new HIV infections and Zero discrimination’. Through prayers, readings, silent reflection and corporate actions and words, congregants are led on a journey, faithfully thanking God for keeping his promises and committing themselves to doing their part to help realize them in love. The service outline (or ‘liturgy’) is now available online in English and Spanish. German and French versions will be available as of November 5th.
