Appreciating the Lord’s Special Ones

Our students from Class VI, VII and VIII 
participated in a Poster Competition on the topic 

“Rights of  Persons with Disability”

organized by the Joy Foundation on 3rd Nov. 2015. 

The students were to draw how they would accept special people and enable them to become aware of the many other gifts God has bestowed on them. By utilizing all those abilities, they would be able to live a happy and successful life.

Movimiento católico mundial por el clima

Noviembre 2015 es un mes histórico para tomar acción contra el cambio climático. El 30 de Noviembre, los líderes mundiales se reunirán para inaugurar la Cumbre Mundial por el Clima (llamada COP 21) y firmar un tratado para hacer frente a la crisis climática.

A lo largo de Noviembre, rezaremos y nos movilizaremos como nunca antes, para poner en práctica el mensaje del papa Francisco en  Laudato Sii.

Para empezar, los obispos del mundo han lazado el “Llamado a las Partes Negociadoras de la COP21” y nuestro movimiento ha respondido con esta “Llamada al Mes de la Acción por el Clima”.

About this course

Freedom of expression is a human right. Learn from the experts at Amnesty International how to claim and defend your rights in this human rights course.

You will be challenged to think critically and devise effective actions to defend the human rights of others.

From USA: Committee on JPIC

REPORT of SECOND MEETING                              

On Saturday, October 24, 8 members of the group met in a phone conference.  At this session, based on our enthusiastic reading of “Laudato Si,” we shared on three points: one new insight, one challenge, and suggestions for concrete application. We were aware of not wanting to “reinvent the wheel” and of the many Church/congregational documents, celebrations and resources already calling for province attention. We then reflected on the booklet, The Journey Makes Us One, which some communities have begun to use and find helpful.  So we decided to focus on it as we “enlarge the conversation” to include everyone in the province. 
We INVITE EACH AND ALL to take up The Journey Makes Us One and let it be a guide on the journey as we respond to Pope Francis call to make “genuine care for our own lives and our relationships with nature  inseparable from fraternity, justice and faithfulness to others”. [#70].
By exploring our Chapter priorities in this way together, we can encounter anew the divine mercy of Jesus, the tenderness of Mary, the compassion of Claudine, and our union with every creature in the cosmos.

Note: The booklet "The Journey Makes Us One" - is  a collection of prayers and reflections - prepared by the Region of America to deepen the three priorities.
