Creating a Community of Courage by Loving our Neighbors as Ourselves.

Motivated by Christ’s call to “love your neighbor as yourself”, dedicated staff and volunteers offer a range of relevant programs designed to provide young people with the skills, tools and values needed to succeed educationally, break the cycle of poverty, and lead meaningful, productive lives and hopefully become community leaders and role models.

Since 1992, Peace of the City Ministries has been a “roll up your sleeves and get to work“ outfit. We feel constrained by the call of Christ to care for those our society would rather forget. Our ministry seeks to provide for the physical, spiritual, and emotional needs of the poor and working poor.

2018 Ordinary Resurrections:  The Beatitudes

This year’s Ordinary Resurrections:  The Beatitudes is based on “Jesus’ Beatitudes:  A Blueprint for Anarchists” by D. John Lee, Ph.D, a 26-year supporter and friend of POTC.  We would like to express our gratitude for John’s profound contribution in setting the stage for our teens’ unflinching honesty, breathless resilience, and their witness to love.

“The Beatitudes, when read psycho-socio-politically, challenge the structures responsible for suffering, injustice and war.  The Beatitudes are subversive both personally and socially….describing and prescribing a life that continuously moves towards others in Love.”
