By Bernadette O’Neill with Cristo Rey Jesuit High School Campus Ministry

9/25 – The Campus Ministry Team at Cristo Rey Jesuit High School in Atlanta celebrated Campaign Nonviolence through a number of activities! First, Bishop Luis Zarama from the Archdiocese of Atlanta blessed a new peace pole during an all school mass, which the following week was planted in our school garden, Students led a prayer service for peace alongside students from the Garden Club, to mark the pole’s new home.

Additionally, students signed the pledge of nonviolence during lunch periods, and prayers for peace were said over the announcements daily. Finally, the team hosted a screening of “Selma,” to remember the nonviolence resistance of civil rights leaders and heroes of the past.
