Pope Francis’ World Peace Day is on January 16 with a theme of: Education, work and dialogue between generations: tools for building lasting peace.
Pax Christi, the international Catholic movement for peace, has produced a variety of on-line and paper resources for parishes, communities and families to celebrate the theme.
In his message to parishes National President, Archbishop Malcolm McMahon 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 non-violence, 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
