Pax Christi Michigan works to bring about peace locally, nationally, and globally through prayer, study, and action.

We invite you to learn more about "Pax Christi".
With the murder of George Floyd as its catalyst, PCM has authored a new statement: Disciplined Nonviolence. Crafted in the spirit of John Lewis, it calls upon both citizens and legislators to rededicate themselves to ending racist systems of militarized policing in our communities. We ask you to read and endorse this proclamation.

Pax Christi USA has initiated an opportunity for tangibly committing to a thoughtful and mature response to the Covid-19 pandemic: A public pledge - on behalf of the Common Good - to wear a mask to prevent the spread of the Corona virus. Take the pledge!
One of the things that sets Pax Christi apart from other peace organizations is our emphasis on the spirituality of nonviolence. When we take time to center ourselves, be open to the voice of God whispering guidance, and maintain mindfulness in the midst of chaos, we believe we are better able to focus on what God calls us to do to find peace within our own lives, and then with our families, our neighborhoods, our country, and our world.
We believe that part of our responsibility as non-violent peacemakers is to "know the facts".
We encourage you to talk to people with direct experience, read accounts from all perspectives, and check out websites & links like those listed here for additional information and helpful resources
"For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also."
