This is the last week to nominate someone for the 2013 Teacher of Peace Award, a special recognition Pax Christi USA bestows each year on a deserving peacemaker. If you know someone whom you think should be recognized (all nominees are listed on the Pax Christi USA website), please send us your nomination by the deadline, this Saturday, May 11. Click here for more information on the award, as well as the nomination form itself.


Also, there are just 10 days left to reserve your room at the Sheraton Gateway Hotel in Atlanta and receive the discounted hotel room rate. If you're coming to the conference, please make your reservations by May 16 and tell them that you want the rate offered for Pax Christi USA conference participants (a discount of over 33%). Click here for more information.


We also ask that you keep in prayer the members of the Transform Now Plowshares as they go to trial this week. For more on what you can do and how to support them, click here. 


Below is the e-Update for May 2013, a recap of all of the items you may have missed but which are still relevant from the past month or so. We hope you'll take a few moments today or later this week to review them and use them as you see fit.
