Welcome to the Beatitudes Center for the Nonviolent Jesus!

This Center was founded and launched on the feast of All Saints, November 1, 2020, to help teach and promote the nonviolence of Jesus, so that we can deepen our Gospel nonviolence; work for an end to racism, poverty, war, nuclear weapons and environmental destruction; and welcome God’s reign of peace and nonviolence here on earth. We offer online zoom classes, workshops, conferences, and retreats, and will start in person conferences in the heart of the Central Coast of California in 2022. Register now for one of our many upcoming programs, and please help us by telling your friends about this new project and promoting us on social media. May we all become Beatitude peacemakers for the Nonviolent Jesus! –Fr. John Dear
