A PCMNY member visited this exhibit in Times Square in the later part of May,2022. Everyday, as a part of this art installation, balloons that were intended to mimic a nuclear warhead were handed out at the exhibit site at 4pm daily. This is a project of Pedro Reyes with sponsorship by ICAN and the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists.
On April 2, 2022 the Church of St. Francis of Assisi Church and Pax Christi Metro New York, along with SOMOS Community Care and Catholic Charities, Archdiocese of New York, will be hosting a symposium on Catholic Social Teaching – a fundamental value of the Catholic tradition.

By popular request, a YouTube copy of the March 19 Retreat is posted here. Drawing on the teachings of mystics from Rumi, Dorothee Soelle, Thomas Berry and the Appalachian People’s Pastoral and then the work of artists depicting the Last Supper, the Trinity, Our Lady of Guadalupe, and Kwan Yen, to name a few. Fr. Terry Moran led us in contemplative ideas regarding peace and justice for our times.
