PEACE, JUSTICE, & ECOLOGICAL INTEGRITY
The mission of the Office of Peace, Justice and Ecological Integrity is rooted in the conviction of the Sisters of Charity of Saint Elizabeth, “that a life of charity requires a faith that does justice,” (Toward Boundless Charity, C20). The Office provides resources and education to the Sisters of Charity of Saint Elizabeth, Seton Associates, and others who share our passion in their work of advocacy around issues of peace, justice and ecological integrity.
The current priority issues of the Office of Peace, Justice and Ecological Integrity, inspired by Catholic Social Teaching and informed by our tradition of Vincentian-Setonian spirituality, are poverty, women, migrants and refugees, human trafficking, peace and nonviolence, racism, and ecological integrity.
The Office of Peace, Justice and Ecological Integrity has a Director, an Advisory Committee of Sisters and Seton Associates, and committees devoted to specific issues.
