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.

September 29, 2021
By Tracy Abler, Justice Coordinator

SEE

We’re All Part of God’s Plan(et) is a national Laudato Si’ awareness and engagement media campaign to educate, inspire and activate U.S. Catholics to embrace and act upon the teachings of Laudato Si’ and to care for creation. The campaign is presented by Catholic Climate Covenant and its member partners, along with the support and engagement of many other Catholic partners who care about and work on care for creation teachings, engagement, outreach, programs, education, activities, and activism. Together, we CAN restore God’s creation!

Faithful Catholics in the seven sectors across the U.S. that embody the spirit of Laudato Si’ to make a difference as a part of God’s plan(et).

Laudato Si Goals with Ecological Spirituality highlighted

 

 

REFLECT

“An integral ecology is inseparable from the notion of the common good, a central and unifying principle of social ethics. The common good is “the sum of those conditions of social life which allow social groups and their individual members relatively thorough and ready access to their own fulfilment.”
- Laudato Si' 44

Celebrate CommUNITY

ACT

Sisters and Associates advance the mission of CSA and bring their charism into the world in countless ways of outreach, programming, education, advocacy, and activism. They engage in community events like farmers markets, festivals, and fairs to connect with the wider public to celebrate the themes of Laudato Si'.

One such event in the Fond du Lac community is CELEBRATE commUNITY. This multicultural fair originated at Marian College, now Marian University, in the early 2000s. Marian University is sponsored by CSA and was founded in 1936; celebrating 85 years this month. CELEBRATE commUNITY has since grown to become a vast, inclusive celebration of the diversity of the community, honoring the inherent worth and dignity all people and the traditions they share.

 

INTERCESSION

That the faculty, staff and students of Marian University continue to engage each other in education, embrace justice and compassion, and transform lives for professional service and leadership in the global community, we pray.
