Inspired by Jesus Christ’s love and compassion for all people especially the poor and oppressed, we, the members of the Peace and Justice Commission of the Altoona Johnstown Catholic Diocese, commit ourselves to the pursuit of truth, justice, unity, peace and reverence for creation.
We strive to serve these gospel interests by our own choices to live non-violently and by engaging our neighbors to join us in the works of justice and peace.
Commission members offer workshops on a number of important issues including
the death penalty, euthanasia, Catholic Social Teaching, the poverty of
affluence, health care, Christian ecology, and more.
