Letter for the Feast of Philippine Duchesne

On November 18 we celebrate the feast day of
Rose Philippine Duchesne.
On this day we begin the 
Year of Prayer
that will help us celebrate the 200th anniversary
of the Society of the Sacred Heart’s courageous decision
to live its mission and charism beyond known frontiers. 
We likewise begin a Society-wide engagement and conversation
to help us integrate more deeply our commitment to
Justice, Peace and the Integrity of Creation (JPIC)
in the life and mission of the Society.
Sister Barbara Dawson, our Superior General,
presents in her letter for Philippine's feast
these two important and interconnected opportunities
for RSCJ and the whole Sacred Heart family.
