pcilogonewPax Christi International will be celebrating its 70th anniversary in 2015!

Pax Christi International invites you to attend the celebrations, taking place in Bethlehem, Wednesday, 13 May – Sunday, 17 May 2015.  Bethlehem was chosen as a symbol of Pax Christi’s commitment to peace and reconciliation. The title is:

Pilgrims on the Path to Peace

Please find the outline programme by clicking here.

T One special feature of this anniversary celebration is that we will be hosting an event open to all Pax Christi members, partner organisations, local and international peacemakers, as well as interested individuals sympathetic with the PaxChristi movement. In the past, world assemblies were mainly for delegations but this time, we are hoping to bring more people to celebrate with us.

The programme offers a variety of events ranging from local visits to dialogue sessions and round tables where members and local peacemakers can reflect and strategize on Pax Christi themes and issues. Also, there will be a day long anniversary festival, celebrated with the local people, including a marketplace, a variety of events, entertainment and the Pax Christi Peace Award ceremony.

There will be several opportunities throughout the programme to connect with the reality of the peace work on the ground. We will also look ahead, as a global network, and launch a new strategic framework for our global peace work for the next five years.

PCI  in partnership with the Holy Land Christian Ecumenical Foundation (HCEF) is sponsoring a Living Stone Pilgrimage to the Holy Land May 11-23, 2014.
