Pax Christi – our vision

The work of Pax Christi – the Peace of Christ–

is based on the gospel and inspired by faith. Our vision is of a world where people can live in peace, without fear of violence in any form.

Pax Christi is rooted in Catholic Christianity but is open to all who share its values and work. 

Pax Christi works for

  • Peace –based on justice. A world where human rights are respected, basic needs are met and people feel safe and valued in their communities.
  • Reconciliation –a process which begins when people try to mend
    relationships – between individuals or whole countries after times of
    violence or dispute.
  • Nonviolence –a way of living and making choices that respects others,challenges what is not fair or just, and offers alternatives to violence and war.
