Pax Christi Michigan works to bring about peace locally, nationally, and globally through prayer, study, and action. We are rooted in spirituality, dedicated to studying issues of justice from the vantage point of all those involved, and espouse working for peace with justice through nonviolent conflict transformation. We invite you to learn more about "Pax Christi".
Covid has made connecting with each other difficult, but not impossible! Pax Christi Michigan hosted a "Winter Survival Kit": Four virtual workshops that should help shore up our faith and our pursuit of justice via Prayer→Study→Action. Check out the recordings in case you missed any of them!

On Saturday, October 17, 2020 Fr. Tom Lumpkin facilitated our Annual Retreat online via Zoom...and did a masterful job of helping us figure out how to hang in there for the long haul. Click here to watch the recorded version of his presentations.
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."
- James 2:26
We believe that we should "Walk our Talk". Please join us as we work to put our prayer and study into action.
