2022 Peace Maker Awards
After more than two challenging years of Covid isolation, office relocation, and administrative changes, the hybrid (live + Zoom) Awards Reception at Xavier High School on June 11 felt like a milestone for Pax Christi Metro New York. Granted, the sound system was initially uncooperative, but eventually Sean Adcroft got the upper hand. It was heartening to actually be with people in the same room, both Pax Christi friends and guests of the honorees. Best of all, our honorees not only told us about themselves and what they have done for peace, they also told us how important Pax Christi is to them. Pierre, Sr. Mary, Brendan, and Caroline are all people who care deeply about doing for others. At the reception they showed us who they are by telling us how much they value what we do. We needed to hear that! We can now feel renewed confidence going forward. Thanks to everyone who helped to make the reception such an affirming experience.
