Catholics for Peace and Justice
Our Mission - “And the fruit of justice is sown in peace for those who cultivate peace.” James 3:18.  Responding to our baptismal call, Catholics for Peace and Justice strives to nurture faith in action for peace and justice for all people through prayer, education, and social action. Our belief and actions are grounded in Sacred Scripture and the tradition of Catholic Social Teaching. The goal of CPJ is to support the Church’s “consistent ethic of life,” which sees war, poverty and human rights abuses, as well as abortion, as part of the “culture of death” often condemned  by Saint Pope John Paul II.

Answering the Call for Room at the Inn

For Christians around the world, Advent means anticipation. It’s when we prepare for the coming of Jesus and reflect on the true meaning of Christmas. Advent reminds us of the Holy Family’s journey to Bethlehem, and what Pope Francis says is our journey to “the horizon of hope.”
