Justice and Peace

Justice and Peace

What is it God requires of us? The Old Testament prophet Micah tells us, “To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.” Jesus puts this instruction into practical terms by teaching us the works of mercy and compassion: feed the hungry, clothe the naked, shelter the homeless, visit the sick and imprisoned, give to the poor, and bury the dead.

We invite you to join with our sisters in the work of Justice and Peace! We are committed to following the footsteps of our patron St. Francis, and the spirit of our community’s three founding sisters, as we open our hearts to the needs of our fragile and broken world.

 

Today, we are called by God to respond to four areas of crisis and concern:

  • Work to end human trafficking and aid those who are victimized

  • Practice principles of nonviolent living

  • Advocate for just immigration policy

  • Care of God’s Creation
