February 22: Congregation of Notre Dame Day of Awareness of Human Trafficking.
This is a good time for reflection on what actions we can take to make a difference on this important issue as well as a short document on what we can do to take action.
The 68th session of the United Nations General Assembly declared 2015 International Year of Soils (IYS 2015). The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) was nominated to implement IYS 2015, within the framework of the Global Soil Partnership and in collaboration with governments and the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification.
Dear Sisters and Associates, I strongly encourage our Province’s continued participation in the Congregation of Notre Dame effort to address Climate Change. We got off to a great start in September at the Climate March. Many also participated in the Our Voices campaign and in the Global Chorus. Later, in several locations including Wilton we actively participated in the Light for Lima Prayer Vigil.
