from St. Rose of Lima Pax Christi (MD)

pcilogonewPlease come and join us for a special evening of “Pax Christi Around the World” and hear about Catholic peacemaking efforts all over the world. Join us on Tuesday, September 23rd at 7:30pm at St. Rose of Lima Church, 11701 Clopper Road, Gaithersburg, MD. ALL ARE WELCOME!

“Pax Christi Around the World” features presentations by Pax Christi International Co-Presidents Marie Dennis and Bishop Kevin Dowling of Rustenberg, South Africa, along with Secretary General Jose Henriquez of El Salvador. This will be their only public appearance in the DC area!

There will be opportunities to ask questions and discuss what is being done by Catholic peacemakers in many of the world’s conflict areas, as well as the need to increase these efforts in an ever more armed world. As U.S. Catholics, we have a special duty to work for peace in the world. Learn how this call is being carried out by others and how you too can join in this effort.

Hosted by the St. Rose of Lima Pax Christi group and co-sponsored by Pax Christi Metro DC-Baltimore and the St. Francis of Assisi Pax Christi group (Derwood, MD). Light Refreshments will be served. For more information (or to request transportation to and from the Shady Grove Metro Station), please contact Bob Cooke at (301) 661-0449 or cookerh1251@gmail.com.

A free will offering for the work of Pax Christi USA will be taken up
that evening.
