One lesson that the past year has taught us is just how important the opportunity to gather is, how much it means to partake in actions of solidarity, how vital it is to be part of a community. Over the past year we have found new ways to “gather”, even when the usual ways were no longer available to us.
In response to the positive feedback that we have gotten over the past year to the opportunities we have provided for virtual gatherings of our Pax Christi USA community, starting in March 2021 Pax Christi USA will begin hosting a monthly virtual Peace Mass for our community to gather and celebrate together no matter where you are.
Our monthly Peace Mass will happen every 4th Thursday of the month, same time, 8pm ET. Subsequent Peace Masses for the rest of 2021 are scheduled for April 22, May 27, June 24, July 22, August 26, September 23, October 28, November 25 (tentative), and December 23.

All are welcome!
The first Peace Mass took place on Thursday, March 25, celebrated by our Bishop-President, Bishop John Stowe, OFM Conv. Our first Peace Mass was dedicated to the memory of Dianna Ortiz, OSU, Pax Christi USA Deputy Director and 2000 Teacher of Peace Award recipient. Dianna transitioned home on February 19, 2021.
