Updates from the Office of Justice, Peace, and Care for Creation

Teresa Phillips, Director of the Office of Justice, Peace, and Creation, offers a weekly prayer, readings, and invitation for actions for our community to join in. If you have any questions, please contact Teresa Phillips at [email protected].

Thank you for your prayers yesterday for the Catholics at the Capitol Day. I have attached the information the Catholics who represented us gave to our Ohio legislators. I hope you will pray this week for those legislators to take to heart the issues discussed and to open their hearts to the wisdom of the Spirit.

On April 9, the Catholic Conference of Ohio will host the annual Catholics at the Capitol. Catholics from around the state will gather in Columbus to pray and to meet with state senators and assembly members to present a Catholic take on the issues faced by our society today

On Good Friday, the annual Way of the Cross Way of Justice will be held downtown at Smale Park along the river. Prayer will begin at noon, and the Paddle Wheel and walk will end at the Esplanade ½ miles away. There will be five stops for prayer connecting the suffering of today to the suffering of Jesus on the way to the cross.

Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur, Making Known God's Goodness

March 22, 2024 - In the wake of the unfathomable violence and suffering unfolding in the Holy Land, our hearts ache with profound sorrow. The egregious attack on October 7, 2023, has sparked relentless assaults, resulting in unimaginable loss and devastation. As Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur, we cannot remain silent in the face of such tragedy. The denial of food, water, shelter and medicine – basic human necessities – has plunged the region into a cycle of despair and anguish while the flames of fury engulf innocent lives.
