Welcome to Peace Church, where faith, community, and belief in peace converge. Our mission is to promote peace and justice in society, with a focus on supporting initiatives that align with our values. In collaboration with Pax Christi USA, we are proud to offer a transformative program at the School of the Americas.
What is Pax Christi USA?
Pax Christi USA is a national Catholic peace movement committed to nonviolence, disarmament, and the pursuit of justice. Since its establishment, Pax Christi USA has been actively engaged in various peace-building initiatives, advocating for policies that promote human rights, and challenging systems of violence. Through their programs, they aim to create a world that reflects God's peace.
The program offered by Pax Christi USA at the School of the Americas is designed to equip individuals with the knowledge, skills, and understanding needed to become agents of positive change within their communities and society at large. It provides a unique opportunity for participants to engage with diverse perspectives, learn from experienced volunteers, and gain practical insights into peace-building.
The curriculum of the program covers a wide range of topics, including conflict resolution, social justice, human rights, advocacy, and the impact of systemic violence. Through a combination of lectures, workshops, group discussions, and hands-on activities, participants are empowered to think critically, analyze complex issues, and develop creative solutions.
One of the highlights of the program is the opportunity to engage directly with individuals who have personal experiences within conflict zones and regions affected by violence. Hearing firsthand accounts and stories of resilience allows participants to gain a deeper understanding of the realities faced by those impacted by violence and injustice.
Community and Networking
At Peace Church, we believe in the power of community and networking. The program at the School of the Americas brings together individuals from various backgrounds, creating a vibrant and supportive network of like-minded individuals. It offers a space for collaboration, sharing ideas, and building lifelong connections based on the common goal of promoting peace.
Impact and Advocacy
Upon completion of the program, participants are equipped with the necessary tools to become effective advocates for positive change. They are encouraged to engage in advocacy work, both at a local and global level, promoting policies and initiatives that advance peace, justice, and human rights. Peace Church continues to support program alumni in their ongoing efforts to create a more just and peaceful world.
