About

An authentic faith-which is never comfortable or completely personal-always involves a deep desire to change the world, to transmit values, to leave this earth somehow better than we found it.
Pope Francis – Evangelii Gaudium

The Christian Peace Education Fund was established in 1982 to encourage education that is rooted in the social teaching of the Church and proclaims a Gospel of peace.

The Fund aims to promote peace through education for all ages. Grants given are small, in the region of £200 – £1000. The Fund has been able to encourage and facilitate many creative initiatives over the years – allowing projects to happen that may not otherwise have been possible.

A key role of the Fund is to provide an annual grant to Pax Christi to enable it to continue its important and long-established peace education work.

The Trustees of CPEF are:

Shelia Gallagher

Mary Ryan (who joined us in July 2018)
