Pax Christi USA, which means Peace of Christ in Latin, is a national Catholic peace and justice movement. Its purpose is to create a world that reflects the Peace of Christ by exploring, articulating, and witnessing the call of Christian nonviolence. This work begins in personal life and extends to communities of reflection and action to transform structures of society. Pax Christi USA rejects war, preparations for war, and every form of violence and domination. It advocates primacy of conscience, economic and social justice, and respect for creation. Pax Christi San Diego is our local chapter.
