Pax Christi International which was founded in France in 1945 by a small group of mostly lay people who met to pray for forgiveness, reconciliation and peace between the peoples of France and Germany. Pax Christi USA, a section of Pax Christi International, is a Catholic peace and justice movement reaching over a half-million Catholics who are part of smaller local groups, such as Fond du Lac Pax Christi.
Pax Christi’s top priorities are:
- spirituality of nonviolence and peacemaking
- disarmament, demilitarization and reconciliation with Justice
- economic and interracial justice in the United States
- human rights and global restoration
Pax Christi envisions a more peaceful, just, and sustainable world through the efforts of our members and in collaboration with other groups.
Fond du Lac Pax Christi meets the second Monday of the month, September-May, 3:00-4:00 p.m. at St Agnes Convent, 320 County Rd K in Conference Room A.
All are welcome to attend.

The Sisters and Associates of St. Agnes invite the public to join them in prayer for peace in our hearts and respect for all people, races, religions, and countries. The monthly prayer nights will begin on September 29 and will continue to be held the last Sunday of each month until the end of April from 6-7 PM at the Chapel of the Sisters of St. Agnes Motherhouse, 320 County Road K, Fond du Lac, WI.
“Our intention is to provide a place and time for anyone of any faith tradition to sit in silence and raise our hopes and dreams for peace in our own lives, in our country, and in our world,” explained Sister Patrice Rog, one of the planning committee. “We will have a short opening and closing prayer, but otherwise, we sit in silence with each other. It is a powerful experience, to pray wordlessly with others.”
Each monthly gathering welcomes attendees to spend time in prayer; a powerful experience that leaves one with a feeling of peace. In the midst of confusion, discord and uncertainty, it can be difficult to find quiet and stillness; CSA and Associates offer this prayer time as a potential solution to that problem.
Everyone is invited to attend the contemplative prayer evenings, regardless of their faith tradition, and no reservations are required. For more information, please call Chelsea Koenigs at 920.907-2300.
