Each year from September 1 to October 4, the Christian family unites for this worldwide celebration of prayer and action to protect our common home. As part of the celebration of the Season of Creation, prayer-reflection guides from JPIC will be posted weekly for the RSCJ and RSCJ Family.

Aiming to promote a common, yet multifaceted perspective on JPIC, we use the term “Transforming Relationships” to express this dynamic view that flows from relationship, through compassion, to transformation. This section contains lived experiences of “Transforming Relationships.”
Earth, our common home, “now cries out to us because of the harm we have inflicted on her by our irresponsible use and abuse of the goods with which God has endowed her” (Laudato Si, 2). Addressing the climate crisis is a critical part of caring for this our common home. In this section, we share concrete calls and action taken, as well as prayers, reflections, and insights.
The JPIC International Coordinator and the International JPIC Coordinating Committee (JPIC CoCo) post news, information, and updates here to keep the Sacred Heart Family abreast on JPIC concerns and matters. Provinces and regions, Sacred Heart institutions, RSCJs and mission partners are invited to send JPIC-related news, information, and resources to Anne Corry rscj (firstname.lastname@example.org)
“The pursuit of justice, peace and integrity of creation permeates all aspects of our lives. We want to include these in the criteria we use for discerning our relationships, ministries and commitments. In so doing, all our choices will be marked by Gospel values” (General Chapter 2008). In this section, we share resources and links that may help us in our reflection and discernment.
