Living in the midst of our beautiful world, we often fail to recognize the devastation being inflicted upon it by human practices. The planet warms, the deep earth is fractured for fuel, nuclear reactors crack and leak because of faulty construction or natural disasters, killing people, and polluting air and water. Mountaintops are stripped and mined, trees laid low, water resources privatized or limited, and good land overburdened and laden with chemicals.

If we consider our global home as “gift,” to be cared for and reverenced, we must come to a recommitment to its protection and renewal. On Saturday, Nov. 2, Father John Rausch of Kentucky will be the keynote presenter for the annual Pax Christi Assembly, the event to be hosted at St. Susanna Parish, 262 Needham St., Dedham, MA, from 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. Father Rausch is a Pax Christi Teacher of Peace, a faith-based activist, and the director of the Catholic Committee of Appalachia. He is a strong environmentalist who speaks out against mountaintop removal and advocates for sustainable economic development.

All are most welcome to join us for the day as Father John leads us in contemplating the topic, “In the Spirit of Peace: Renew the Face of the Earth.” Registration includes lunch. Donation is $30 in advance, $35 at door. Student donation is $15. Register with check made out to “Pax Christi MA” and mail to Ronald Holman, 15 Chris Drive, North Attleboro, MA 02760.
