Peace Sunday 2022, 16th January

Pax Christi England and Wales (Catholic movement for Peace)

Each year on Peace Sunday we promote the Pope’s World Day of Peace message (available here); this year it is entitled: ‘Dialogue between generations, education and work: tools for building lasting peace’. Pope Francis highlights how education is fundamental for peace.

Peace Sunday is promoted with the support of the International Affairs Department of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales. Pax Christi’s work is inspired by our Christian faith; but is open to all who support its values. We strive for a world where people can live peacefully through reconciliation, justice and non-violence.

Pax Christi depends very much on financial contributions we receive from Peace Sunday parish collections.  In the present circumstances we would be extremely grateful for anything you can give towards events and campaigns.

Show us our place in this world as
channels of your love for all the
creatures of this earth, for not one of
them is forgotten in your sight.

Enlighten those who possess power and
money, that they may love the common
good, advance the weak, and care for
this world in which we live.

The poor and the earth are crying out.
O LORD, seize us with your power and
light, help us to protect all life, to
prepare for a better future, for the
coming of your Kingdom of justice,
peace, love and beauty.

Pope Francis (adapted from Laudato Si’)
