Each November, Pax Christi USA members and friends gather on Friday night prior to the annual School of the Americas Vigil and Action in Columbus, GA. Our program this year will include prayer, music, inspiring speakers and more. The program is open to the general public and all are invited to attend. We hope you can join us!



This year's program is entitled:

Gun Violence Has No Room in the Spirituality of Peacemaking


Prayer, panel discussion, reflection and song will focus on the out-of-control gun violence in our nation as well as examine the complicity of the U.S. in supplying arms and training in the on-going violence of war-making in the southern hemisphere. Addressing domestic gun violence in our homes and neighborhoods will be Sr. Patricia Chappell, SNDdeN, Executive Director of Pax Christi USA located in Washington, D.C. Kathy Kelly, co-coordinator of Voices for Creative Non-Violence will address how the U.S. manufacturing, selling and training in weapons usage puts the U.S. in complicity with terrorism and torture particularly in Mexico and other Latin American countries. Gun violence has claimed the lives of far too many people and, if we are to stand for justice and lay claim to being peace-makers, we must act to limit the indiscriminate use of guns at all levels of society.
