Justice Committee

The Justice, Peace & Care of Creation Committee raises individual and community awareness of situations which adversely affect the quality of life for everyone.   We will add issues of interest and fact sheets to this website, so check back with us again. 
We produce a newsletter, Where Justice and Truth Meet to invite continual study of current issues and provide updates on issues we have addressed in the past.

What Does Earth Ask of Us?

When the Dominican Sisters Conference (DSC) last met in Convocation, we were challenged by the question,

What is Earth Asking of the Dominican Order?

We have been engaged across the country in a process of reflection using The Faith Praxis Cycle to help us understand Global Climate Change. The hope was and remains that we are moved to action on behalf of God’s People and Earth. On November 30, 2015, the world’s leaders will gather in Paris for what may be the most significant climate summit to date – Paris 2015. In preparation for that gathering we offer the following materials for study, reflection and prayer, making the connection between Global Climate Change and the critical issues of our time, eg. human trafficking, water, migration, poverty, etc. We trust this will help us collectively to understand, reflect and take appropriate actions regarding the vitally important issue of the climate crisis.
