WHO WE ARE: A community within Pax Christi USA, the Young Adult Caucus provides space for peacemakers in their 20s and 30s to grow together, educate one another in dialogue, mobilize for action, and accompany the Catholic peace movement into its future as we pursue a just and sustainable world.

Within the Pax Christi USA movement, PCYAC is led by the National Council, in collaboration with the National Office, informed by the Anti-Racism Team, and supportive of Pax Christi International. 

WHAT WE DO: The Pax Christi USA Young Adult Caucus meets monthly via Zoom to pray, study, and act. As we grow, and once the pandemic subsides, we will be more active in-person. Some of our recent programs include:

PCYAC retreat, June 2023
PCYAC retreat, June 2022

TO JOIN: PCYAC is always looking to expand our community and invite new people to share in reflection, prayer, and action. If you would like to be added to the PCYAC email list, please fill out this form and a member of the leadership team will be in touch.
