Welcome to Pax Christi! We’re the local affiliate of Pax Christi USA, the national Catholic Peace and social justice organization dedicated to heeding the call of Christ to bring healing to a troubled world.
What We Stand For:
Pax Christi rejects war, preparations for war, every form of violence and domination, and personal and systematic racism. We seek to model the Peace of Christ through our own witness to the mandate of nonviolence the Cross so poignantly proclaims.
What We Do:
- Guided by the spirituality of nonviolence, we advocate and provide leadership for disarmament, demilitarization and reconciliation with justice, inclusiveness, economic and interracial justice, humane rights, and care of creation.
- We strive through prayer, study and action to be attentive to the key issues facing the world and to respond in a way that has a positive impact.
- We work to align our organizational structures and policies with Christ’s imperative of peace through justice.
Just as Christ proclaimed the purpose for which he had come, we strive to bring to realization a more peaceful, just, and sustainable world. And we seek to do so in collaboration with all like-minded groups.
