The title Pope Francis has chosen for the 55th Message for the World Day of Peace is
“Education, work and dialogue between generations: tools for building lasting peace”.
It is promoted with the support of the International Affairs Department of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales.
Pax Christi depends very much on financial contributions we receive from Peace Sunday parish collections. In the present circumstances we would be doubly grateful for any donation you are able to make towards our work for peace.
