Pax Christi International

Nonviolence Initiative

Geneva, Switzerland

Pax Christi International (PCI) is a faith-based global network promoting a comprehensive vision of peace which is rooted in the Gospel. The Catholic Nonviolence Initiative (CNI) is a global initiative of Pax Christi International which affirms the vision and practice of nonviolence is at the heart of the Catholic Church and Catholic Social Teaching. Since its beginning in 2016, the core beliefs of the CNI have been:

  1. Nonviolence is central to Catholic life and Catholic Social Teaching
  2. A Just Peace moral framework that prefers nonviolence is applied to contemporary contexts; and
  3. Church structures teach and promote nonviolence to educate and mobilize Catholics.                                                 

For it is in giving that we receive.

St. Francis of Assisi
