Justice & Peace
This is what the Lord asks of you, only this, to act justly, to love tenderly and to walk humbly with your God -- Micah 6:8
As followers of St. Francis, we observe the Holy Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ, living in obedience, poverty and chastity. The Gospels call us to:
- Respond compassionately to the needs of our time
- Raise consciousness of injustices and promote understanding of various ways to respond
- Work to transform unjust systems in our local area, our nation, and our world
We participate with other Franciscans in our concern for those in poverty, for Mother Earth, and for a just peace in our families, our nation, and our world. We are members of Franciscans International, which has an active presence at the United Nations. We partner with Catholics as well as interfaith and civic groups in the promotion of justice and peace.
We welcome you to join us in becoming better informed on social justice issues and in making a difference through action and advocacy.
