Office Updates

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.

A Christian, ecumenical prayer experince built on deep silence, beautiful music and chanting.  All are welcome. 

In preparation for the January 21st Women's March on Washington, the Justice, Peace and Integrity of all Creation office is sponsoring an informational gathering 5:30pm, Friday, January 20, 2017. This event will include a pot-luck dinner followed by two workshops.

The Publication Committee of the USC Province has asked the JPIC Office at the Stuart Center to gather stories about the way that RSCJ responded to the Vatican II call to serve the needs of the poor and marginalized.  More than 60 people have already sent in memories, stories and information about their own involvement or about the work of other RSCJ, many of whom are no longer here to tell their own stories. 

If you would like to join in this effort, please just use the link below.  You can upload pictures, videos and even a voice recording.
