PAX CHRISTI METRO NEW YORK
October 5, 2013

This organization works for peace and justice and helps me sort through all the information available to see what is really happening. By working with them I am able to have an impact, where by myself I feel powerless to fight against injustice. I also have found out about how to follow in Jesus' nonviolent footsteps - learning through their conflict resolution workshops the context of Jesus' words about 'turning the other cheek' and 'walk another mile, if asked to walk one mile', what they really meant. And Kerux, their newsletter, always has great writing as well. I hope you can join us! Margaret A. Flanagan

PAX CHRISTI METRO NEW YORK
November 22, 2011

Learning how to live as a nonviolent follower of Jesus, I have found Pax Christi Metro New York to be an excellent source for opportunities to meet with like minded people and learn how to do more and be an active person choosing non violence in our troubled world. The retreats each year challenge me to grow in my understanding of how to follow Jesus and give peace to everyone I meet. The Way of the Cross across 42nd Street is my favorite part of Good Friday, the way the various groups tie in the theme each year is more powerful than the last. The networking helps me to find out what is really going on.
