The Week for Peace has been a regular activity of the National Social Pastoral of the Episcopal Conference of Colombia and Caritas Colombiana for 30 years. This year's event, however, is special. It coincides with the visit of Pope Francis to Colombia and it celebrates the national peace agreement signed between the Colombian government and the leadership of FARC on November 24 of last year. Besides the Social Pastoral and Caritas, the Promoting Committee includes Redepaz, CINEP, and Pontifical Javeriana University. Visit Caritas Colombiana for more information.
