Archdiocese of St. Louis Peace & Justice Commission
In May 2015, Archbishop Carlson appointed 27 individuals to serve as members of the Commission. The Commission is comprised of a diverse group of 18 men and nine women. Members of the Commission include lay persons, clergy, religious sisters, police officers, attorneys, and educators. Marie Kenyon is the director of the Peace and Justice Commission.
The Commission will develop its priorities by looking at how issues affecting our region specifically impact the family. As Catholics we believe as Pope Francis states “the family is the fundamental cell of society, where we learn to live with others despite our differences and belong to one another.” By working to help strengthen the family, the Commission hopes to help build stronger communities and a peaceful and just region and world.
