The mission of the Justice, Peace and Integrity of Creation ministry is to explore CSA's distinct contribution to the ongoing, nonviolent transformation of the world towards peace, justice and ecology. This work embraces the efforts of sisters, associates, co-workers and others who share the CSA vision. We live out the mission to bring about systemic change by using the lens of nonviolence to focus on the issues of women, children, health care, globalization (especially as it affects Latin America), seamless ethic of life.

Season of Creation: Sept 15

September 15, 2021
By Tracy Abler, Justice Coordinator

SEE

Eliminating the use of disposable plastic and Styrofoam, correctly recycling as much as possible, and reducing purchases of new consumer goods are a set of actions we can take to progress to the goal of adopting a sustainable lifestyle.

Could our current recycling habits be doing more harm than good?  Watch this "Recycle Right" video from Sustain Fond du Lac - a community action group whose aim is to support, educate, and nurture sustainable development in the Fond du Lac area.  Not in the Fond du Lac area?  Learn the DOs and DON'Ts from your local material recovery facility.

REFLECT

The current global situation engenders a feeling of instability and uncertainty, which in turn becomes “a seedbed for collective selfishness.” When people become self-centered and self-enclosed, their greed increases. The emptier a person’s heart is, the more he or she needs things to buy, own and consume.   - Laudato Si' 204

ACT

In additional to recycling practices throughout their homes and work spaces, CSA Sisters participate in CSA Swap - an online message board for Sisters only, who are looking to share or find items such as musical instruments, office supplies, household goods and furniture, and more. By sharing among themselves sisters help avoid purchasing duplicates or discarding items that may find a second-home in the community. What they don't re-home within the congregation, they donate to the local St. Vincent de Paul thrift store to ensure it has a new life.

 

INTERCESSION

That we are inspired to use the riches of creation with wisdom, and to ensure that their blessings are shared by all, we pray.
