Donated food and personal care supplies during the Sisters of Charity Lenten Collection for our Migrant Neighbors were delivered to Catholic Charities this week! The SC Office of Peace, Justice and Care for Creation partnered with Catholic Charities of Southwestern Ohio to provide food assistance to fit our migrant neighbors dietary needs. Pictured are (from left) Scott Stephens - Catholic Charities Southwestern Ohio, Debbie Weber – OPJCC director, Laila Aladimi - Catholic Charities Southwestern Ohio, and Shanyce Matthews – Mt. St. Joseph University student. Thank you to all our supporters for your compassion and generosity.

In 1985, Pax Christi USA offered its members a Vow of Nonviolence. It was composed by Eileen Egan and Fr. John Dear. The Vow can be pronounced privately, with a local peace community, as part of a parish liturgy, or any other way that suits you. Many profess the Vow each year as part of their New Year observance.
