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.


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. 


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.


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.


An Invitation to Join the 40-Day Fast for Christian Nonviolence

As many of you know, each year Pax Christi Metro New York joins with others around the country to fast for Christian nonviolence.  The fast is a response to and a prayerful protest against the culture of violence that plagues our society whether in our media, entertainment, language, or actions against individuals and nations.  It is also a commitment to peacemaking in our everyday lives.

Steeped in the Catholic tradition, our advocacy for peace and justice is based on the Church’s social teaching and on Jesus Christ’s lived example of prayer, nonviolence and solidarity with the poor. In that spirit, we offer seasonal reflections, prayers, and actions to do in solidarity with each other.
