Peace and Justice Ministries The Catholic Community of Saint Malachy brings a Gospel perspective to issues of Social Justice.
Catholic Peace Fellowship
Catholic Peace Fellowship or CFP is a community of Christians who have joined together to bring a Gospel based perspective to Peace, Justice and Environmental issues. CFP serves as a forum where people who share these concerns can come together for prayer and discussion, educations, mutual support and collective action. Non-violence is the essential message of the Gospel which we are called to practice in every dimension of our lives: to be non-violent in spirit, word and action. CPF meets in the parish rectory on the 2nd Sunday of every month following the Sunday Mass. For more information, please go to www.cpfphila.org

P.O.W.E.R – Philadelphia Organized to Witness, Empower and RebuildWe are Philadelphians Organized to Witness, Empower & Rebuild (POWER). We are congregations from all across the city, intentionally bringing people together across the lines of race, faith, income level and neighborhood — lines which have historically kept Philadelphians divided. We are people of faith committed to the work of bringing about justice here and now, in our city and our region. By strengthening and mobilizing our networks of relationships, we seek to exercise power in the public arena so that the needs and priorities of all Philadelphians are reflected in the systems and policies that shape our city.
