Banner 3-11

Thursday, August 22, 2013



This weekend several events are planned to mark the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington, where Martin Luther King, Jr. gave his historic "I Have a Dream" speech. For the march on Saturday, Pax Christi USA members and friends in the Washington, D.C.-area are invited to join local members from the Pax Christi Metro DC-Baltimore region who will meet at 7:30 a.m. at the Simón Bolívar statue at 18th and C Streets, NW. The closest Metro stations are Farragut West (Orange Line) and Farragut North (Red Line). The Metro stations open at 7 a.m., so the group will hang around the statue till about 8 a.m or so to give people time to arrive.  From there they'll walk to the Mall via Constitution Avenue and 17th Street, so if you get there a little late you can catch up with them--look for their banner.


You're also invited to "A Catholic Conversation on Race, Religion & the March on Washington," on Sunday, August 25, at Most Holy Redeemer Catholic Church. The event starts with Mass at 11 a.m., followed by a panel discussion at 12:30pm. Panelists include PCUSA Executive Director Sr. Patricia Chappell, SNDdeN, and PCUSA Teacher of Peace Msgr. Ray East, among others. This event is being co-hosted by Pax Christi USA.
