Congregational Justice and Peace Network
Interdependence for the common good requires us to collaborate with those who are working to eliminate all forms of oppression, act for a just world, and foster fullness of life. We claim our identity as an international congregation within the global community and hold as a common ministry our corporate stands in response to evolving situations.”—Living Interdependence for a Just World.
The SNJM Congregational Peace and Justice Network has been the focal point for action and education related to peace and justice for more than 25 years. The Network plays a major role in ensuring that the community’s justice mission is translated into action and resources that people across the globe can use. The Network is made up of Sisters and Associates from across the Congregation, including 10 from the U.S.-Ontario Province. It provides a shared focus for all Sisters, Associates, and partners to ensure that activities are coordinated and aligned.
During the past several years, the Congregational Peace and Justice Network has:
- Developed tools to promote corporate stands on water, anti-trafficking and HIV/AIDS
- Developed a water booklet and bookmarks
- Educated people in parishes, on campuses and communities about anti-trafficking
- Educated high schools students about our founder, Mother Marie Rose, and her commitment to justice
- Helped educate people about the global AIDS crisis
