Peace Education Newsletter – Advent 2014

Dear friends,


I am delighted to announce the launch of our new General RE peace scheme of work which is available now

This resource, consisting of six lessons investigating a variety of themes in Christian peacemaking, is designed to fit into any Catholic sixth form’s General RE programme. It enables the learner to think critically about the theology and scripture that inform work for peace, explores the practical demands of peacemaking today, and empowers students to take action on issues of injustice about which they feel strongly. Lessons 1-5 can also be used as stand-alone lessons.


School Visits:
We are taking bookings for school visits next term. More information here

I have two free days for school visits in the North-West or North Wales on Tuesday 20 and Thursday 22 January. Let me know as soon as possible if you would like to take advantage of either of these opportunities 


Advent Service
We have our annual advent service and Christmas market this evening at St Aloysius, Somers Town this evening. If you are around London do consider joining us at this wonderful event


Peace Sunday
Sunday 18 January is Peace Sunday
. A great opportunity for schools to use the days either side of that weekend to pray for in a special way for peace.

Wrap up Westminster
On Saturday 24 January there is a mass protest, Wrap up Westminster, against plans to replace the Trident nuclear weapons system.


Ash Wednesday
Ash Wednesday, 18 February – our annual service of repentance and resistance to nuclear war preparations at the Ministry of Defence in London. Full details will appear on our website in the new year

There is a report on the 2014 service here


Many thanks for all of your support of Pax Christi’s peace education work in 2014 and I look forward to working with you again in 2015.


Wishing you every blessing for a joyful advent and a peaceful Christmas,

Matt Jeziorski
