Dear Regional or Local Group Leader,
Earlier today, Pax Christi International announced a new campaign, "Bread is Life - Fast for a Just Peace in Syria." Sr. Patty asked me to forward this information to all regional coordinators, local group and campus leaders and invite you to discern how your groups may participate in this campaign.
The press release reads:
