JPIC core committee meeting - October 23-25

Eleanor McCloskey, CND

The JPIC core committee met at the mother house October 23-25. Monica Lambton, Coordinator, was joined by Sisters Mary Corbett, Anne Gillis, Eleanor McCloskey, Eileen Roach and Catherine Walker, with Congregation of Notre Dame associates Dorena Hall and Teresa McKerral.

We began Thursday evening with a viewing of the video Do the Math (http://topdocumentaryfilms.com/do-the-math/) This powerful film on the topic of climate change led us to serious considerations in choosing a focus for our Action Plan in the coming months. On Friday, Monica shared, with energy and enthusiasm, a presentation on the participation of the Congregation of Notre Dame in the recent People’s Climate march in New York. Later, Apraham Niziblian, Interim Coordinator of the Congregation of Notre Dame Social Justice Network, and Sister Maura McGrath, joined us to continue the discussion, especially considering the question of what can happen to carry forward the momentum from this huge event last month. The Committee wrapped up with some specific plans for continuing our work and meeting in June at the CRC JPIC National Gathering 2015. We concluded with prayer in hope and a strengthened desire to continue “advocating with conviction for change that will make a difference in the lives of vulnerable people and the environment.” (from Living Ecological Justice, cpj, 2011).
