Members of the U.S.-Ontario Justice Network met the weekend of Oct. 7-9. Sister Linda Haydock conducted a workshop focusing on “We Call Ourselves to More” drawn from the Prologue to the Acts of the 34th General Chapter.
Mission Centre representatives who attended the meeting committed themselves to further education on human trafficking, water and the environment and the plight of immigrants and refugees. They also pledged to collaborate more purposefully to advocate for others and to promote concrete action as appropriate in their respective regions.
A Peace Walk for Justice took place Saturday afternoon. The procession of Justice Network members and guests visited the Peace Pole at Mary’s Woods, the Marylhurst Labyrinth, the Marylhurst University Peace Pole, the Our Lady of Marylhurst shrine and finally the Peace Pole at the U.S.-Ontario Province office. Sister Margaret Ball led the peace walk participants in a prayerful chant during the closing ritual.
