|A special event to celebrate the 80th Birthday of Marie Dennisformer Pax Christi International Board Member, Co-President, and present Program Chair for the Catholic Nonviolence Initiative|
Sunday 25 September, 8.00 GMT
|Marie Dennis has led the Catholic Nonviolence Initiative since it was developed at the global conference in Rome in April 2016. The Initiative is a call to the Catholic Church to recognize the centrality of active nonviolence to the vision and mission of Jesus and to its long term vocation of healing and reconciling of both people and the planet. The Catholic Nonviolence Days of Action, September 21st – October 2nd, are part of this effort. |
Pax Christi International (PCI) wants to honor Marie’s extraordinary work with a celebration and a fundraiser. PCI works at the global level coordinating and supporting approximately 120 country initiatives that promote nonviolent action toward just peace. PCI’s scope of work has increased exponentially in recent years and they are using this moment of celebration to ask for donations in Marie’s name.
Please join the gathering to hear Marie share her vision of hope and the power of nonviolence that, as she has said … “energetically promotes just peace, the new story, the beloved community, the New Creation.” Your donation to PCI will celebrate Marie and ensure that the PCI message will continue to reach into every corner of our world. But you are invited to join whether you make a donation or not.
