Second Nonviolence and JustPeace Conference

Thursday, April 4, 2019 - 12:00 to Saturday, April 6, 2019 - 12:00

What: Second Nonviolence and JustPeace Conference

When: April 4 – 6, 2019

Where: Rome

Pax Christi International and the Vatican’s Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development are hosting the second gathering of leading Catholic thinkers and practitioners of nonviolence. The Catholic Nonviolence Initiative—a global project supported by Pax Christi International, Maryknoll and other Catholic organizations—plans to present a document focused on the application of nonviolence in our faith tradition. The document, which will be presented during the second “Nonviolence and Just Peace” conference in Rome, follows from the first “Nonviolence and Just Peace” conference that was held in Rome in 2016.

The Catholic Nonviolence Initiative hopes this document could serve as the basis of a new Catholic teaching on active nonviolence and peacebuilding around the world.

The Initiative invites people everywhere to learn more about Gospel nonviolence and to seek ways to promote it in their everyday lives at their website
