Pax Christi campaign to remember all wars’ victims

To mark the season of remembrance Pax Christi has produced a range of materials on ‘No More War: Let’s make peace happen’.

Their purpose is to help people think about the tone, language and symbols when exploring what Remembrance means to people and also for conveying our responsibility to work for peace and an end to all war.

Pax Christi urges that Remembrance events and liturgies be inclusive of a range of voices and stories, reflecting, for example, on the stories of Catholic Conscientious Objectors of the First World War; allowing those who today have direct experiences of war to have a voice. Many parish communities include people with such experiences.

It also causes for remembrance events to name all those killed in recent wars: the civilians, journalists, aid workers, soldiers, medics, to reflect the full tragedy and cost of warfare.

Pax Christi has produced a postcard for handing out in churches and communities and a full range of images, prayers, poetry stories and practical ideas to help in creative planning.

A wide range of peace services, exhibitions and gatherings are being organised around the country.
