The theme of Pope Francis for World Peace Day on Sunday January 16 is “Education, work and dialogue between generations: tools for building lasting peace.”
Pax Christi, the international Catholic movement for peace, has produced a variety of online and paper resources to celebrate the theme.
In his message to parishes, Pax Christi’s national president, Archbishop Malcolm McMahon, said: “This year has been one of unprecedented and continuing challenges.
“We are all conscious of the need to restore and rebuild our communities here and around the world, accepting that we need new ways of working and relating to each other.
“The Christian message of peace, through reconciliation, justice and nonviolence, can offer hope and direction in these times.
“I invite you to seriously consider facilitating a collection for, or donating to, the work of Pax Christi at this time, as a way to make a practical contribution to continuing the work of peace.”
