Catholics for Justice and Peace in the Holy Land
We are Canadian Catholics responding to the call of Palestinian Christians as articulated in the Kairos Palestine Document for justice for all in the Holy Land. We aim to equip, educate and empower Catholics to engage in issues of justice and solidarity with Palestinians and Israelis as they strive for a just peace.
