Pax Christi Icon of Peace


At the Eucharistic Congress, Liverpool – September 2018


The Icon, made in the Monastery of St John in the Desert, near    Jerusalem, was gifted to Pax Christi International in 1999.  The people and stories depicted on the ICON, from Eastern and Western Christian traditions and from scripture, open our eyes to forgiveness and reconciliation as part of making peace.  It is a most powerful resource and we are delighted to make it available to our members  and supporters around the country.

In 2017 the ICON was hosted by a number of parishes in Leeds Diocese and then became a  focal point during the Taize gathering in Birmingham in 2017.

In September 2018 the ICON was featured in a parallel programme at the ‘Adoreumus’ Eucharistic Congress in Liverpool. The Icon is now located at the Liverpool parishes of Saint Michaels and The Sacred Heart. Planning is now underway for The Icon to travel to Hallam Diocese for the Diocesan Justice and Peace day in October.



Please be sure to get in touch with us soon if you are interested in booking the Icon for your parish, community or school as places will quickly fill up in the months ahead. Contact: orders@paxchristi.org.uk
