Support CPF
Help raise a mighty league of conscientious objectors! Our resources are few, but with your help, CPF can keep reaching out to soldiers and students, sharing the Church's tradition of peace. And just think how much is being spent to "share" the tradition of war... A LOT.

For two thousand years, the Church has confronted issues of war and peace. What has it said, and what about now?
