“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give it to you.
Do not let your hearts be troubled or afraid.” (John 14:27)

“Seek peace and pursue it.”- Psalm 34:15
Guided by a personalist philosophy, the Catholic Peace Fellowship works for peace before, during, and after war through education, counseling, advocacy, and accompaniment.
The Catholic Peace Fellowship (CPF) offers practical and pastoral support to military and veterans who are struggling with the contradiction between their personal participation in war and their consciences. The CPF provides:
-Counseling, advocacy, and support for conscientious objectors and selective conscientious objectors to war
-Catholic resources for conscience formation in regard to questions about war and peace for families, teachers, parishes, and campus ministers in and through web and print media, talks, lesson plans, and workshops
-Staff prepared to address what modern clinicians, philosophers and theologians call “moral injury” and what St. Augustine called “anguish of soul” or “heartfelt grief” through our David’s Heart ministry
-Spiritual direction, guidance and accompaniment for military, former military, and their families
-Information on upcoming retreat opportunities, listening circles, pilgrimages and other resources for those returned from combat and their families in the Midwest and beyond
-Experienced staff and advisors who have worked to advocate for justice for and aid in healing of those who have been in the military and their families, as well as for reparations for and outreach to victims of war in lands ravaged by combat.
