Pax Christi means “Peace of Christ” and is a Catholic peace and justice organization. Our members work together in the following areas:
- Care for Our Planet
- Human Rights
- Anti Racism
- Restorative Justice
We are a part of Pax Christi USA, and Pax Christi International and as such share the Pax Christi USA vision statement:
Grounded in the Gospel and Catholic social teaching, we reject war, preparation for war, every form of violence and domination, and personal and systemic racism. We are members of the international Catholic peace and justice movement that seeks to model the peace of Christ in our witness to the mandate of the nonviolence of the Cross.
Guided by the spirituality of nonviolence, we advocate and provide leadership for disarmament, demilitarization and reconciliation with justice, inclusiveness, economic and interracial justice, human rights, and care of creation.
We strive through prayer, study and action to be attentive to the intersectionality of the key issues stated above and, in our response, to be conscious of their impact on the world community.
