Join us on Thursday, December 16, 7:00 p.m. EST, for a presentation by author and global peace activist, Marie Dennis. She will address the topic, “The Catholic Church: Centering Nonviolence?”
Overview: For many years, Pax Christi’s Catholic Nonviolence Initiative has appealed to the leadership of the Catholic Church to move Gospel nonviolence to the center of Church teaching on peace, social justice and our relationships with the Earth. Is the Church moving in that direction? And how can you be involved?
