“We must love our neighbor
as being made in the image
of God and as an object of
His love.”

Office of Justice, Peace and the Integrity of Creation

JPIC provides education, advocacy and action opportunities for our Sisters and Associates as well as the local, state, national and international community of our sisters and brothers. Currently, we have six Justice Circles, made up of Sisters and Associates, that focus on the following six topics: Poverty, Homelessness, and Food Insecurity; Earth Justice; Peace and Nonviolence; Antiracism; United Nations NGO Impact; and Immigration and Ending Human Trafficking. Click the Justice Circle Logo to learn more about our justice circles. If you would like to join our Justice Circles or would like more information, email Mackenzie Doyle at mackenzie.doyle@srcharitycinti.org.

Moreover, all peace and justice issues are important to us, such as the abolishment of the death penalty and gender equity, even if they do not currently have a Justice Circle devoted to that topic. Intersectionality is a key Grounding Value for the Justice Circles and for the Office of Justice, Peace, and Integrity of Creation. Therefore, we recognize how all areas of justice intersect. Additionally, because we value existing partnerships and collaboration, we work with several organizations including: Archdiocese of Cincinnati, Catholic Charities of Southwestern Ohio, Ignite Peace, Leadership Conference of Women Religious, Metropolitan Area Religious Coalition of Cincinnati, Mount St. Joseph University, Ohio Sisters Justice Network, Sisters of Charity Federation and Vincentian Family of North America. Check out all of our Grounding Values by clicking the Justice Circle logo above.

JPIC Mission Statement

The mission of the Office of Justice, Peace and the Integrity of Creation is to move the work of justice through education, advocacy and action rooted in our Sisters of Charity charism which calls us to be agents of change.
