Pax Christi Michigan's 31st Annual State Conference:
PAX CHRISTI MICHIGAN is thrilled and honored to present TWO outstanding keynote speakers. Our first is Tom Cordaro. Tom, author of the book, Be Not Afraid: An Alternative to the War on Terror (2008), has drawn broad national and literary acclaim, making him a highly sought after speaker. He has been involved in peace and justice education and advocacy for over 30 years. Since 1997 he has served as the Justice and Outreach Minister at St. Margaret Mary Parish in Naperville, IL. Prior to that he was involved in campus ministry and parish peace and justice work in Iowa, Pennsylvania and Florida from 1976. He is also a former staff member and former National Council Chairperson of Pax Christi USA. Trailers of Toms challenging presentations can be seen on YouTube.
