Stop the war with Iran

January 06, 2020
By Sister Ruth Battaglia, CSA

The Sisters of St. Agnes have taken a public stance against violence and therefore oppose a war with Iran. To be most effective, express your concerns as soon as possible.

Contact your Senators and Representatives. Urge them to deny funds for war with Iran. 

For a petition from Maryknoll Office of Global Concerns, click here. Go to “Take action”.
