Blessed Franz Jägerstätter Feast Day

Blessed Franz Jägerstätter

Today marks the Feast of Blessed Franz who was executed in Austria in August 1943 for his refusal to serve in Hitler’s army. He was Beatified in Linz Diocese in 2007. Pax Christi has followed the story and witness of Franz for many years and has created a wide range of resources on his life, including an excellent workshop for use in school or with young people.

There are more resources here in the Diocese of Linz

Find time to read his life-story. If you are a teacher or work with young people try the workshop.

Key issues facing Christian peacemakers: Owning racism as a white problem- and really changing

Join NCPO throughout May to discuss some of the key issues currently facing Christian peacemakers. Each session will run twice, once in the daytime and the other in the evening of another day.

Owning racism as a white problem- and really changing

“In this workshop we will analyse how we all suffer from unconscious bias and are often unaware of our privilege as white people. John Cooper of the Fellowship of Reconciliation will give us some theological insights. We hope that this will be a step on the way to becoming actively anti-racist as individuals and will help us to encourage our congregations to move forward.”
