2003 The Prayer Partner Ministry was established; hundreds of hermit guests promise to continue to pray for Pacem in their daily lives. • The Pacem In Terris ministry has grown to include 240 acres of woods, prairie and wetlands. Approximately 1000 hermit guests are received annually; about half are new to Pacem. Since Shirley accepted that invitation in 1979, hundreds of people have joined in this mission through prayer, time, talent and treasure.
