Life, Peace, and Justice Commission
of the Diocese of Reno
"If you want peace, work for justice." - Pope Paul VI
Statement of Purpose for the Commission:
We, the Life Peace and Justice Commission, attest to the unity we share in the Body of Christ through the Holy Spirit. In solidarity, directed by Catholic Social Teaching and inspired by Scripture, we commit ourselves to encourage our parish communities to work for justice and peace. We speak for the voiceless in our community and world, seeking to advocate for the dignity of all and promote the unity that we share as the creation of a loving God.
Who are we?
The Life Peace & Justice Commission, which formed in 1998, is comprised of volunteers from several parishes of the diocese. We meet monthly to discuss the work of peace and justice in our diocese, and we welcome newcomers anytime. We need your prayer and support as we work to make this commission a voice for justice in our churches, our community and our world.
