Disarming Times

Disarming Times is a quarterly journal published by Pax Christi Australia. It aims to provide Pax Christi’s members and interested peacemakers with peace news and views both local and international.

Each edition endeavours to reflect the three-fold emphasis of Pax Christi Australia which seeks to engage members in:

  • Study
  • Non-violent action
  • Prayer for peace, justice, human rights, development and inter-faith and inter-civilisation dialogue.

The newsletter also contains a ‘Noticeboard’ which lists important upcoming Pax Christi meetings and public events.
