2017 Animate Peace Gathering
27 – 30 July 2017
Renaissance Hotel, St. Louis, Missouri
The Gathering begins Thursday evening with 5pm
dinner and ends on Sunday at 11am
In his opening statement of the 2017 World Day of Peace Message, Pope
Francis prays that, "especially in situations of conflict, let us respect
this, our deepest dignity, and make active nonviolence our way of life."
Our Holy Rule tells us to be mindful that we are all bearers of peace, and
as such, we are called to continual conversion of heart and mind.
During our Animate Peace Gathering, we will learn the art of
nonviolent communication and mindful listening as paths to
conflict resolution and nonviolent living.
