The evening started with a welcome from Cathy Crosby, former member of the Pax Christi USA National Council, and Carole Lacour of Pax Christi Atlanta, with both serving as the emcees for the evening.

"Pax Christi USA members have been coming to the vigil and action here at the School of the Americas from the very beginning, and for 13 years now, we've been gathering like this, on Friday evening, to deepen our witness to peace, to celebrate the gifts of our movement, and to encourage each other for the challenges that lie ahead," stated Lacour...
