In support of “Just Peace” based on Gospel
non-violence

We, the Sisters of the Holy Cross, are called to be peacemakers, rejecting violence in its multiple forms. We support the international Non-Violence and Just Peace Conference statement which rejects “just war” language in Catholic teaching and proposes “that the Catholic Church develop and consider shifting to a Just Peace approach based on Gospel non-violence.”

Read the complete statement at PaxChristi International.

We invite you also to look at our corporate stands on nonviolence and peacemaking and our 2014 Chapter Direction Statement which calls us “to work to implement a culture of peace and nonviolence.”

Join us in prayer to end violence in our world.
