Justice, Peace & the Integrity of Creation

Office Updates

On the Feast of Philippine in November of 2017, we extended the invitation (by Survey Monkey) to participate in this reflection process to all RSCJ, Associates and members of the Network of Sacred Heart Schools. Those who were interested were asked to pick one of four interest groups (Environment, Immigration, Racism and Poverty) to use as a lens for their conversations...

 Saint Madeline Sophie stated that she would have founded  the Society of the Sacred Heart for the “sake of a single child”.  Because this commitment to the safety and well-being of children is at the heart of our mission,  the United States Canada Province stands in strong opposition to the present policy of separating children from their parents

In the wake of yet another mass shooting at an American school, the leadership of the Society of the Sacred Heart in the Unites States-Canada Province joins its voice to those of the surviving students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and people of good will from all faiths across this country who are demanding an end to the legislative paralysis that prevent common sense gun control from being enacted in this country.

First, I want to thank each one of you throughout the Sacred Heart Family who held me in prayer on February 27th as I joined with 41 other women religious, priests and laypeople in an act of civil disobedience in support of the Dreamers. Although it was my first time ever getting arrested, I found it was a deeply moving experience to spend an entire day engaged in such a well-planned and carefully choreographed act of solidarity.

Human Trafficking experts agree that there is an uptick in human trafficking around big sporting events but they want to caution us not to get lulled into thinking that it is an issue that can be addressed on only one day of the year.

The International Office of Justice Peace and Integrity of Creation in Rome has invited the USC Province (and all Provinces around the world) to participate in a six month reflection process to help set the agenda for an international JPIC meeting to be held in the Philippines in November of 2018. You can join the  160 RSCJ, Associates, Alums, Collaborators and Network members have siged up by clicking on the link below . (Please click on the Title of the update to read the full article.)
