Loretto Co-member Rosemary Casey shared the photos with this post of her taking part in a recent nuclear siren protest in Honolulu, where she resides. The “Campaign NonViolence: Building a Culture of Peace” event was sponsored by campaignnonviolence.org, a project of http://www.paceebene.org/. According to its website, Pace e Bene “is a long-term movement to build a culture of peace and nonviolence free from war, poverty, racism, the climate crisis and the epidemic of violence and injustice.” While Rosemary notes she is more a participant than a leader with this group, she says she stands with them and their work to engage in nonviolence and peace opportunities.

In an email to Cathy Mueller SL, Rosemary added, “Our nuclear siren protest is really a protest against nuclear weapons and all the bellicose rhetoric going on about the use of nuclear weapons. So much discussion about all this as a result of a botched ‘incoming nuclear missile’ alarm.”

At right in the leather hat holding one side of the banner is Father David Gerlach, an Episcopal priest who has a very socially active community, Rosemary Casey said. She noted that Father Gerlach’s community is in the process of setting up a Catholic Worker house on the church property in the Kalihi section of Honolulu.
