MOMS ROCK: SELF COMPASSION

Wednesday, December 11, 2019

Wednesday, December 11, 9:30–11:30am, Room 212, $10       RSVP
When we live from a place of self-compassion, we honor and love our imperfectly perfect human self, creating space to invite in mindfulness and curiosity to our inner critic and meet it with love, kindness, and grace. Simply put, it is remembering to be our own best friend—especially in moments of struggle.   Moms ROCK welcomes all parents, parents-to-be, and anyone else interested in joining. Gatherings include brunch and relaxing social time, followed by uninterrupted time to focus on the day’s guest speaker. Complete details at www.paxchristi.com/momsrock.

HONORING OUR LADY OF GUADALUPE

Saturday, December 14, 2019
Patroness of the Americas and Queen of Mexico
Saturday, December 14 beginning with 5:00pm Mass

Please join Pax Christi’s Latino community for our fourth annual celebration. You’re welcome to bring flowers, which we will place before Our Lady, especially roses like those that miraculously appeared on Tepeyac Hill in 1531`for St. Juan Diego to take to Bishop Zumarraga as a sign of Mary, the Blessed Mother’s true presence that cold December morning. Mariachis will once again serenade Our Lady with Las Mananitas traditionally played at events such as baptisms, birthdays, and Mother’s Day. They will continue adding to the festivities in Dorothy Day Hall as we dine on a home-cooked Mexican dinner. Once again, you’ll be able to enjoy the Mesa de Honor (Table of Honor) with images of Our Lady brought from the homes of Pax Christi members. The children will also break a pinata! All are welcome to help plan this event including decorating, food preparation, service, and clean up after the festivities. Contact Lisa Cox, lcox@paxchristi.com, or 952-405-7242.

In this small group setting we will have time for ritual, prayer, and sharing around a monthly topic.

JUST MATTERS

Saturday, January 4, 2020

OPENING RETREAT: Saturday, January 4 8:30am-5:00pm

CHOOSE A SESSION: 
Wednesdays, January 8–February 26, 1:00–3:30pm 
OR 
Thursdays, January 9–February 27, 6:00–8:30pm

Faith and Racial Equity: Exploring Power and Privilege is an eight-week module that awakens groups to the economic systems, public policies, cultural norms, and hidden biases that empower some and oppress others. The first half of the module introduces a framework for understanding and recognizing racial disparities in power and privilege. Sessions five through eight take a deeper dive into specific issues related to power and privilege, including affirmative action, the school-to-prison pipeline, the criminal justice system, and powerful biases in media representation. As with all JustFaith programs, participants will explore how their faith should inform their response to their learning, as well as discern action steps for working toward racial equity in their own communities. Please note that Faith and Racial Equity is not for the faint of heart! The module is designed for participants who are willing to wrestle with hard questions and take an honest look at their own attitudes, assumptions, and choices. However, through spiritual grounding and community building, participants find support and belonging throughout their journey to personal transformation and social action.

NO FEE: This program is made possible through the generosity of the Catholic Community Foundation.

Questions? Contact Andrea Ward, 952-405-7207, or award@paxchristi.com.
