Justice, Peace & Integrity of Creation
The Office of Justice, Peace and the Integrity of Creation (JPIC) is one of the vehicles through which the Ursuline Sisters of the Roman Union in the central U.S. province seek to impact our world—local, national and international—in the spirit of St. Angela Merici. Our tradition calls us to have special concern for the needs and rights of women and children.
As part of an international community, we are able to impact the lives of women on six continents; our interconnectedness enables us to direct our resources to areas of special need. As one of the U.S. provinces, we can respond to the challenges that weigh heavily on women in the United States. We seek to respond to the needs of our local areas while maintaining our national and global thrust.
Advocacy, action and prayer are the hallmarks of our approach. Keeping abreast of issues on various levels allows us to advocate for change. Our sisters and collaborators work directly with people in need and through education to bring change. We seek to keep the poor and disenfranchised at the heart of our prayer.
Ursuline Sisters of the Roman Union in the three U.S. provinces maintain a Justice, Peace and Integrity of Creation website dedicated to shining a light on current issues of concern and ways in which we all can take positive action.
