PCM invites you to our 14th Annual New Year’s Day ecumenical prayer service (via Zoom this year). Held January 1, 2021 from 1 – 2:30 pm), Pax Christi Lansing and Pax Christi Michigan are providing you with an opportunity to be at peace by praying for peace with other lovers of peace. “No Charge for Humanity” will highlight Pope Francis’ 2020 encyclical Fratelli Tutti on which recognizes ALL of us as FAMILY. Via prayer, video, music and discussion, will focus on how we can...no, MUST... close the gaps that separate us from each other. Please register to participate by 12 noon on Friday, January 1, 2021 so we can forward to you a booklet to follow along. Invite your family, friends, church and social groups to do the same. ALL are welcome! Really, ALL!
On Saturday, October 17, 2020 Fr. Tom Lumpkin facilitated our Annual Retreat online via Zoom...and did a masterful job of helping us figure out how to hang in there for the long haul. Click here to watch the recorded version of his presentations.
Pax Christi USA has initiated an opportunity for tangibly committing to a thoughtful and mature response to the Covid-19 pandemic: A public pledge - on behalf of the Common Good - to wear a mask to prevent the spread of the Corona virus. Take the pledge!
One of the things that sets Pax Christi apart from other peace organizations is our emphasis on the spirituality of nonviolence. When we take time to center ourselves, be open to the voice of God whispering guidance, and maintain mindfulness in the midst of chaos, we believe we are better able to focus on what God calls us to do to find peace within our own lives, and then with our families, our neighborhoods, our country, and our world.
We believe that part of our responsibility as non-violent peacemakers is to "know the facts".
We encourage you to talk to people with direct experience, read accounts from all perspectives, and check out websites & links like those listed here for additional information and helpful resources
"For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also."
