JPIC: Being Artisans of Hope in Our Blessed and Broken World

The 2016 General Chapter articulated this intention for Justice, Peace, and Integrity of Creation (JPIC) and provided the impetus for convening the International JPIC meeting in the Philippines, November 14-25, 2018.

In preparation for this meeting, the entire Society and members of the Sacred Heart family engaged in a reflection process that held three goals:

1. To live compassion by coming together to listen deeply to the cries of humanity and the entire earth community.
2. To establish relationships that impel us to act as One Body and decide how we are to pursue our JPIC commitment.
3. To transform attitudes and actions in view of deepening our expression of JPIC for the Society's life and mission.

The following document provides a detailed synthesis of the responses generated by this process and highlighted some important aspects of our JPIC story.
