Pax Christi USA, has named 20 new Ambassadors of Peace, who join 30 previous such ambassadors in being recognized for contributions they have made toward furthering the practice of Gospel nonviolence.
These new ambassadors have been named in celebration of the group’s 50th anniversary, and they will be commissioned during a Mass at the organization’s national conference, which will be held in Washington from Aug.5-7
The 20 new Ambassadors of Peace include our own Fr. Chris Ponnet and Olga Sarabia,
Johnny Zokovitch, Pax Christi’s executive director, stated that this new group of ambassadors represents “what Pope Francis calls for when he talks about people who embody the deepest sense of what it means to have an encounter with both Jesus and the world. These are folks that have taken that call to discipleship really seriously, and they are credible witnesses for just the kind of church that Pope Francis is calling for.”
