Justice, Peace & the Integrity of Creation

Office Updates

As Religious of the Sacred Heart in the United States-Canada Province we are called by our recent Chapter Documents to stand in solidarity with “those who have been wounded, displaced, and excluded because of poverty, violence, and environmental degradation.”  

One of the sisters at the recent Justice Coordinator's meeting (JCWR Gathering at Techny) met the creator of this new free social justice resource webpage:

The Stuart Center welcomes participants in the People's Climate March. We will host a simple pot-luck supper 4/28, followed by a film and night prayers around the fire pit (weather permitting)...

The Stuart Center (located at 821 Varnum St. NE) will host a free, family-friendly gathering for all those who are interested in or actively  engaged in work that protects or beautifies the environment. Groups who wish to participate are invited to set up a table with information about their work and be prepared to give at 10 or 15 minute presentation.  (Powerpoint, video or personal presentations would all be welcome.)  The event will begin at 1 PM with presentations running from 2-3-30PM.

In the days leading up to and following the Women’s March on Washington, many Catholic women, including women religious, found themselves thinking deeply and broadly about what it means to protect and defend life. As a Religious of the Sacred Heart, and as the organizer of the Society’s presence at the DC March, I found myself in deep and heartfelt conversations with two members of the extended Sacred Heart Family who were having a hard time understanding how we could participate in an event that included pro-choice groups.
