Justice Peace and Integrity of Creation (JPIC)

Justice Peace and Integrity of Creation (JPIC)2019-10-31T18:10:11+00:00
When Mother Clara Pfaender encouraged her sisters to respond with loving kindness to all persons, she could not have imagined the future or the many needs her sisters would face, nor the creative ways her sisters would respond to those needs. She gave them, as she continues to give us, courage and freedom to respond with imagination and love.

SUPPORT & ADVOCACY TO PROMOTE SOCIAL CHANGE

Inspired by Mother Clara’s words, the JPIC Office endeavors each day to look at the greatest social justice issues of our times, and to discern how we can best respond: encouraging green practices to care for Mother Earth; signing petitions or sending letters to our government representatives; responding with prayer and concern for the marginalized and forgotten people in our society; and more.
