PAZ is a Catholic organisation whose objective is the promotion of peace by strengthening good relations among Muslims and Christians, and all other peoples. The organisation is an offshoot of the ZAMBASULI Consultation on Peace and Justice held in 1994. Convinced of the needs of the Church to be directly involved in the region, the representatives of the Archdiocese of Zamboanga City forged PAZ, to keep“the small flame of peace flickering”. It is open to work in solidarity with Muslims and other non-Catholic groups in the pursuit of peace in Zamboanga and the region.
