Where in the World Is Compassion?  
Creating Ongoing Relationships for the Common Good
 
 

The 2012 Pax Christi Texas Conference remembers the invitation of NOSTRA AETATE, the Declaration on the Relation of the Church to Non-Christian Religions. The Declaration speaks of the goodness within Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism, and Islam.  We wish to focus on compassion and service which can unite us and help in building peace in the world.  We particularly wish to remember what the Declaration says of Muslims,

 Join us for interfaith discussions, panel discussions, and prominent speakers. Listen to voices from diverse faiths and create relationships for the common good.
