February 7th, National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day
Friday, January 12, 2018 by Communications
Did you know that there are over 1 ¼ million people in the USA living with HIV, the virus which causes AIDS? One fourth of them DO NOT KNOW that they are infected with the virus. If you do not know that you have the virus, you could be spreading it to others. The only way to know if you have HIV is to get tested. Stigma, discrimination and shame---these continue to prevent people from talking about HIV, getting tested or seeking treatment. The HIV /AIDS epidemic is a health care crisis for Blacks, especially African Americans. On February 7th and throughout the year, please pray for those living with and affected by HIV/AIDS. For information visit www.HIVAIDSServicesMinistry.org, or call (312) 948-6500.

P.S.
Please ask your pastor and/or liturgy team to include a petition such as the following in the weekend masses of February 3rd and 4th:
“God of Hope, make us one as we walk in solidarity with all who live with HIV/AIDS. Encourage our hearts and open our minds. We pray…”
