DEATH PENALTY VIGILS

During Florida executions, Pax Christi Palm Beach members gather before the Cathedral of St. Ignatius Loyola on Military Trail in Palm Beach Gardens.   We meet at 5:30 PM and stand in silence from 5:45-6:15 on the street corner of Holly Drive and Military Trail.  This witness is to publicly oppose the public killing that is being done in our name.

Please see our DEATH PENALTY PAGE for more information and updates about upcoming vigils.

PAX CHRISTI MISSION

Pax Christi USA strives to create a world that reflects the Peace of Christ by exploring, articulating, and witnessing to the call of Christian nonviolence. This work begins in personal life and extends to communities of reflection and action to transform structures of society.

Pax Christi USA rejects war, preparations for war, and every form of violence and domination. It advocates primacy of conscience, economic and social justice, and respect for creation.

Pax Christi USA commits itself to peace education and, with the help of its bishop members, promotes the gospel imperative of peacemaking as a priority in the Catholic Church in the United States.

Through the efforts of all its members and in cooperation with other groups, Pax Christi USA works toward a more peaceful, just, and sustainable world.
