Pax Christi Metro NY

Mission Statement

Rooted in Gospel nonviolence, Pax Christi Metro New York (PCMNY) educates and advocates for peace and social justice locally and globally through prayer, study, and action.

PRAYER

As people of faith, we understand peace as a gift from God which we must constantly accept. In prayer, we receive strength and support to sustain us as we make peace in our hearts, which must happen before we can follow the Spirit to peace in our Church and world. 

STUDY

Waging peace demands an understanding of the complex world in which we live. We are committed to educating ourselves and our community in a variety of ways.

ACTION

As Christians, we must act concretely and deliberately toward the Reign of Peace by advocating for the protection of human dignity through economic and political justice, and an end to all forms of violence.

2022 Peace Maker Awards

After more than two challenging years of Covid isolation, office relocation, and administrative changes, the hybrid (live + Zoom) Awards Reception at Xavier High School on June 11 felt like a milestone for Pax Christi Metro New York. Granted, the sound system was initially uncooperative, but eventually Sean Adcroft got the upper hand. It was heartening to actually be with people in the same room, both Pax Christi friends and guests of the honorees. Best of all, our honorees not only told us about themselves and what they have done for peace, they also told us how important Pax Christi is to them. Pierre, Sr. Mary, Brendan, and Caroline are all people who care deeply about doing for others. At the reception they showed us who they are by telling us how much they value what we do. We needed to hear that! We can now feel renewed confidence going forward. Thanks to everyone who helped to make the reception such an affirming experience.
