Justice, Peace & Integrity of Creation

“There are many things that can only be seen through eyes that have cried, said St. Oscar Romero.”

The Justice, Peace and Integrity of Creation Office is a ministry of the Sisters of St.Francis. Because we live in a world ripped apart by many divisions there is a critically urgent need for all of us to be educated on issues. Then the need follows  foeach of us to step forward together taking action with and on behalf of those whose voices are ignored and marginalized. We are called to be prayerful and prophetic; we are called to stand up with all of our sisters and brothers/all of creation.

May each of us cry, see, pray and actively participate in bringing about the reality of Jesus’ gospel message – a message that resonates with all major religions.
