On February 14, 2024, Christians for Ceasefire held an Ash Wednesday Catholic Mass and Public Witness for Peace in the Holy Land at the White House as the launch of a Lenten Ceasefire Campaign. The purpose of the event was to call attention to and in mourning for the tens of thousands of lives that have been destroyed in Gaza and Israel since October 7, 2023. About 150 people joined the witness and a smaller group of 14 people risked nonviolent arrest. FAN cosponsored the event and executive director Michele Dunne offered the intercessory prayers during the Catholic Mass. Read the press release here.
