Peace Sunday

This Sunday (16 January), we celebrate Peace Sunday. 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.
 
Pax Christi, the international Catholic movement for peace, has produced a variety of resources to help celebrate the theme. They can be found here: Peace Sunday 16 January 2022 – Pax Christi England and Wales.
 
Archbishop Malcolm McMahon, who is the National President of Pax Christi, said: "This year has been one of unprecedented and continuing challenges. We are all conscious of the need to restore and rebuild our communities here and around the world, accepting that we need new ways of working and relating to each other. The Christian message of peace, through reconciliation, justice and nonviolence, can offer hope and direction in these times. I invite you to seriously consider facilitating a collection for, or making a donation to, the work of Pax Christi at this time as a way to make a practical contribution to continuing the work of peace."
