Bishop Gumbleton delivering the opening keynote at the 2013 National Conference.

Day One of the 2013 national conference started off with a rousing challenge and welcome from Sr. Patty Chappell, SNDdeN, Executive Director of Pax Christi USA, continued through our opening prayer--highlighted by a moving and powerful dance performed by liturgical dancers from Our Lady of Lourdes parish here in Atlanta--and culminated with our first keynote, "Remembering the Past with Gratitude," by Pax Christi USA Teacher of Peace Bishop Thomas Gumbleton.

I'll try and get up more items from the conference later today as I have time!
