Peace and Justice Updates, August 8, 2017

Ohio-area Sisters and Associates are invited to a symposium entitled: Blessed Are the Peacemakers: Re-Imagining a World of Active Nonviolence. The program is sponsored by the Cleveland Diocesan Social Action Office and will be held Saturday, September 30, 2017, at John Carroll University Dolan Center.

This symposium is inspired by the April 2016 “Non-violence and Just Peace Conference” held at the Vatican to initiate a global conversation in response to the growing violence in our world. The focus of the symposium is on creative solutions to peace building and active non-violence with opportunities for education and dialogue rooted in the Catholic Peace Tradition. This day is for anyone wanting to engage and bring a creative understanding towards Catholic Social Teaching and building peace in our communities and the world. For more information go to the Event Page.
