Pacem in Terris 50th Anniversary
Celebratory Dinner

You are cordially invited to celebrate the 50 years of peace with justice work of  Pacem in Terris
on Thursday, October 19, 2017, 5 – 9 pm
at The Waterfall,  3416 Philadelphia Pike, Claymont, DE 19703





The speaker for this memorable evening will be John Dear, an internationally known voice for peace and nonviolence. A longtime activist, popular lecturer, and movement organizer, Fr. John Dear is the author of 35 books and hundreds of articles on non-violence and peace. He was recently nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize by
Archbishop Desmond Tutu.


Other attractions of the evening include:

  • Reception, 5:00 – 6:00 pm. Meet old friends, snack on hors d’oeuvres, see displays of Pacem’s different

programs and projects and how you can participate. See the display of nearly 50 years’ worth of anti-war and
pro-peace and justice signs, banners, flags, posters, and flyers that have been stored away in our archives. Collectively,
they tell the story of the last half-century, as seen through the lens of the peace movement.
In addition, as a beautiful counterpoint to these historical pieces, there will be an exhibit of art works from
the Youth Peace Art Exhibition that Pacem sponsored at The Delaware Contemporary in September.

  • Children’s Chorus, 6:00 pm. Enjoy the beautiful music of the Imagination Players.
  • Dinner will be a delicious meal to enjoy with friends.
