Putting together On The Lineour monthly web feature which highlights news of local groups, regions, and Pax Christi members around the nation each month is among my favorite things to do. To see the breadth and scope of the work that Pax Christi USA groups and members are undertaking all across the land is impressive and inspiring. Putting together this most recent edition was particularly tough because so many people had sent me info about what they're doing, or their group, or another member whom they had read about. I've posted a full complement of items in today's edition, but I had to leave quite a bit out too. Not to worry though! Some of the most recent items I've put in a folder with the intention to feature them next month.


I hope you enjoy catching up on the work of the extended Pax Christi USA family as much as I do. This month's edition is on the website now. Hope you have a wonderful rest of Advent and a joyous Christmas!
