Catholic Peace Ministry (CPM) was formed in the early 1980s to facilitate the work called for by Roman Catholic Social Statements to work for peace and justice. It has focused mostly on issues of Central America, militarization, economic justice and the death penalty. CPM is an independent, non-profit organization with no official ties to the Des Moines Catholic Diocese.
