Pueri Cantores

Singing for peace, worshipping God and experiencing community in a worldwide movement

Founded in 1950 by a French Abbé named Fernand Maillet the international federation of children’s and youth choirs grew up to more than 1000 members coming from 25 countries with regular federations and spread choirs and contact persons in 17 more countries. Every year girls and boys meet in different cities all over the world to sing for peace, praise the Lord and having fun to make music together. They generate a vivid community with a powerful cultural and spiritual impulse.

Happy Easter in the light of the Risen Christ

Heavenly Father,

as we celebrate the Easter promise of new life in the Risen Christ,

we ask for the gift of your peace upon our broken and war-torn world.

We pray for all nations and communities

tarnished by war, racial conflict, and violence.

At this time, we pray especially for the peoples of Ukraine, Haiti,

Yemen and the Holy Lands.

Through your Son, the Prince of Peace,

bestow your gift abundantly upon us

so that all nations and peoples may truly flourish and develop

according to your holy plan for all of creation.

We pray this through Christ, our Lord.


Happy Easter

in the light of the Risen Christ
