Chicago Union League Club, 65 W Jackson Blvd. (see map)
Join us for an evening of music and fun supporting the Peacebuilders Initiative.
Since 2001, more than 500 high school juniors and seniors from the Chicagoland area have participated in this innovative program, which prepares youth for active leadership roles in peacemaking and reconciliation. They bring the theology and ministry they experience back to their schools, neighborhoods, and parishes through student-led peace projects.
The Acts of the Apostles tell us that the very first name the earliest followers of Jesus gave
themselves was the people of “The Way” (see, for example, the Acts of the Apostles 9:2).
Only later, when the gospel had spread to Antioch, did people outside the community name them
“Christians” (see Acts 11:26). The name “The Way” implied that these early disciples of Jesus
were committed to following in his footsteps and living as he did. It also reminded them—
and us—that as people of faith we are on a lifelong journey to God.
