Pax Christi – Peace Sunday 2016 is on 17 January

Peace Sunday 2016 will be celebrated on 17 January.  The theme is “Overcome indifference and win peace”, the press notice says:  Peace is to be worked at: it is not something that one gains without efforts, without conversion of mind and heart, without a sense of creativity and positive engagement in discussion. Such an action must urgently have recourse to build a sense of responsibility and awareness creation about the serious problems and challenges afflicting our time

  • Short video  introducing the theme
  • Put the date in your parish diary NOW!  Peace Sunday is the main opportunity that Pax Christ has to raise income for its on-going work.  Invite your parish to have a second collection for Pax Christi or to make a donation to Pax Christi. Without this income our work cannot continue. Resources to help you mark the day will be available in November.

Below, the resources we produced for Peace Sunday 2015
