Marian University All are Welcome!
St. Francis Hall Room 165

Please join us the weekend of March 21st as we Fast for Living Wages.
Fasters will be going without food, some for as long as 72.5 hours, to show support for raising Indiana’s $7.25 per hour minimum wage. We invite all ranges of participation. If you can give up a single meal, that means a lot, as does fasting for the entire period.
Our small, temporary discomfort reminds us of the more significant struggles of the half-million Hoosiers who work for sub-poverty wages. And we aim for our actions to remind Indiana lawmakers of their moral duty: to ensure that all workers can afford a roof over their families’ heads and food on their tables.

Pax Christi was born on 13 March 1945. Pierre Marie Théas, bishop of Montauban in Southern France gave Marthe Dortel Claudot his full support to start a Christian movement for reconciliation and peace. On the evening of 13 March this movement was baptized as Pax Christi in a flat in Montauban.
