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.
