“Blessed are the Peacemakers” (Mt. 5:9)
This central gathering of Catholic social ministry leaders in the U.S. annually brings together hundreds of participants whose faith inspires them to respond to pressing current domestic and global challenges. This year’s theme, “Blessed are the Peacemakers” (Mt. 5:9), recognizes the call to heal in a world broken by conflict, division, and inequality. Inspired by Jesus’ example and the Eucharist, we must encounter, listen, accompany, and work together to build peace.
