Who we are

The overall goal of the CNI is that the Catholic Church, rooted in faith, will lead the world away from perpetual violence and war by expanding its investment in its intellectual, pastoral, academic, diplomatic and financial resources in developing and promoting nonviolent practices and strategies. The Church also will educate Catholics and society at large about active nonviolence as a spirituality, a way of life, a universal ethic, and a practical and effective tool for building peace within families, local communities, nationally and globally.

It is a project of Pax Christi International, the Catholic peace movement.
