Welcome to The Peace Abbey Foundation website!
The mission of the Peace Abbey Foundation is to create and install public works of art that promote peace and nonviolence; and to administer and care for Abbey Interfaith Peace Chaplaincy, The Pacifist Memorial, The Animal Rights Memorial, Cremation Cemetery for Conscientious Objectors and the National Registry for Conscientious Objection. Throughout the year, the Foundation presents the Int’l Courage of Conscience Award at conferences and peace ceremonies and extends the impact of the Peace Seeds interfaith prayers for peace through their dissemination worldwide.
The Foundation supports grassroots efforts to link the many dimensions of the peace movement with a committed emphasis on human rights and animal rights. Central to our universalist approach is the premise that nonviolence is the most effective and long-term strategy in addressing the multitude of challenges that now threaten our increasingly imperiled planet.
- To Educate: We conduct and sponsor programs and projects that promote a deeper understanding of the importance of service as a way of life. We exemplify this commitment to altruism through our decades-long affiliation with The Life Experience School for young adults with disabilities.
- To link: We conduct and sponsor public events that promote understanding and mutual respect between people of different faith traditions and non-believers. We celebrate examples of artistic expression that elevate the ideals of compassion, cooperation, fairness and peace.
Daniel Berrigan We are delighted to announce that the bronze bust of the late Fr. Daniel Berrigan, who was a dear friend of the Peace Abbey for many years has been completed and will soon be on display at the Peace Abbey Foundation Cottage in Millis, MA. It joins the previously commissioned works by the Abbey that include statues of Mother Teresa, Mahatma Gandhi, Samantha Smith, Oscar Romero, Barack Obama and his maternal grandmother, Emily the Cow and the Courage of Conscience Award which is presented throughout the year. The masterpiece was created by Lado Goudjabidze.
