Busy Summer at JPIC!

JPIC Update: Our Justice Peace and Integrity of Creation Office has had a very busy summer. After the Corporate Stance process in May, our Core Committee members attended the national CRC JPIC in Toronto, and we had our own meeting afterward. In June, our JPIC circulated a Press Release to join our voice to the widespread public welcome to Laudato Si, from Pope Francis. In July, I was occupied preparing a presentation on the Encyclical for the Congregation of Notre Dame Social Justice Network taking place in August. We are currently joining with our sister organization Development & Peace, as they carry out a Climate Action fall campaign. In the short term we are focused on the Paris U.N. Climate Conference and our long-term sites will be worked out at our annual JPIC Core Committee meeting to be held in Montreal in October.

REFLECTION ON WATERBURY AREA DAY

REFLECTION ON AREA DAY: Associate Suzanne Fandel shared this after being at the Waterbury Area Day. “On my ride home I thought of what really struck me in my sharing time with the sisters. “If this group of women (whose future is uncertain -  and without a doubt will be different from what they expected when they made their vows) can use prayer as their guide and move forward trusting God will provide, then following their example, I can overcome any challenges in my own life. What a relief!” It was a blessed experience for me. Thank you for inviting me.”
