Mission Center: The Episcopal Church: Advocacy

Peace Making

"Will you strive for justice and peace among all people?” “I will, with God’s help.” Episcopalians, acting on this promise in the baptismal covenant, have sought not only to bring peace to specific regions throughout the world, but also to build a culture of non-violence and proactive peacemaking at home.

Working together for justice.
