OPJIC Priority Issues
We primarily educate the Sisters of Charity and Associates, other Religious Congregations and their Associates, as well as those seeking awareness on our common interests. Five issues have been identified as priority to the congregation.
Earth calls us to an awareness of the interconnectedness of all human and non-human life and the urgency of our global responsibility.
Women calls us to an awareness of the sexist attitudes and behaviors which violate the dignity of women and the injustices that they promote.
Active Nonviolence calls us to an awareness of the interconnectedness of personal, societal and global violence done to humanity and Earth.
Political and Church Systems calls us to an awareness of the effects of dominant power structures so that we may work toward deconstructing existing systems and constructing a new paradigm.
Anti-Racism calls us to an awareness of personal, societal, global, systemic oppression that dehumanizes the “other.”
