Welcome back to our newsletter, New Frontiers! This edition covers a six-month period of JPIC and UN-NGO activity.
Sacred Heart at the UN
March 22 is World Water Day!
The 11th grade students of Sapporo Sacred Heart School, Hokkaido, Japan decided that the Bicentennial of St. Philippine Duchesne’s crossing to new frontiers was a good occasion to invite the Sacred Heart family worldwide to carry out a new action together.
As we respond to our Call to Be and Act as One Body, our contribution to the global achievement of the SDGs becomes more effective. Let us recommit to working together for world peace, justice, and human dignity for all by bringing to this international forum our national and local experiences.
This issue highlights some recent visits and participation in events of the UN-NGO and the International JPIC Service. Several of these events focus on some efforts of the Society of the Sacred Heart to help raise awareness and prevent human trafficking.
Here are five photos of recent "significant moments" in the life of our communities, provinces, or regions in different parts of the world.
March 22 is World Day of Water.
The Society of the Sacred Heart is a co-sponsor of this conference; and our UN-NGO Representative, Sheila Smith rscj, is on the panel.
