Pax Christi International has been working to build peace and bring reconciliation around the world for 75 years.

It all began in 1945, from the pioneering vision of our founders Marthe Dortel-Claudot and Bishop Pierre-Marie Théas to promote, against all odds, reconciliation between France and Germany in the aftermath of World War II. What started as a campaign of prayer, soon became the official International Catholic Movement for Peace. Discover the very beginnings.

Since our founding 75 years ago, we’ve made extraordinary progress bringing about significant and sustainable changes, both at the grassroots and global levels. Have a look at some milestones of our journey all over the world.
