Catholic peacebuilding employs the theology, institutional relationships, and spiritual strength provided through the Catholic Church to bring greater justice and peace in the world. It involves both clergy and laity. As a Catholic network, CPN believes that authentic and effective peacebuilding involves dialogue and collaboration with those of other religious traditions and all those committed to building a more just and peaceful world.
