Congregation of Notre Dame International and Provincial Justice Plans

This past summer’s International Justice Network Meeting included hearing the final report of the group which assessed the carbon footprint of the mother house and made suggestions for reducing it. We also welcomed back Ms. Bineta Ba as Chairperson of the Social Justice Network. Because of the General Chapter, we will not have a meeting next summer. While the attached International Plan is for two years, our Province Plan is for only one year.

In late November, there will be Global Marches for Climate in preparation for the Paris Meeting in December. In early December, there will be a Gun Violence Sabbath in the United States.

Thank each of you for responding as generously as you do.
