Since the beginning of the pandemic, Pax Christi USA has been responding with resources for prayer, study and action aimed at lifting up the common good, sacrificing to protect the health and well-being of others, and building the solidarity that binds people together in times of crisis. Our first response to the crisis was articulated March 17, 2020 in this letter from our Executive Director, followed by regular updates as the scope and depth of the pandemic was fully realized in the spring of 2020 (March 24, April 26, May 4).

The Pledge to Protect Others during this Pandemic

Long before the politicization of masks had reached a fever pitch, Pax Christi USA was inviting people to take the “Pledge to Protect Others”. Over 2,500 people took the pledge and tens of thousands heard the message through a successful social media campaign asking people to prioritize the health and well-being of both the people they love and strangers. You can read more about that effort, started in mid-May 2020, here.

A special website was launched to lead this effort. Click here to see the Pledge to Protect website.
