Laudato Si Action Platform Officially Launched
The Laudato Si' Action Platform officially launched Nov. 14, opening the door for Catholic institutions of any size and in any location across the world, to enroll in a multi-year, Vatican-supported process toward sustainability in light of integral ecology.
MSJC is one of the more than 4,000 church organizations who have already committed to this powerful and ambitious environmental initiative and many other entities within the Marianist Family have also signed on individually. This is an exciting step for the Catholic Family and MSJC is excited to jump into this collaborative work.
Adding to our Trained Circle Keepers
One of MSJC's 5 Year Visioning Goals is to "promote the widespread use of restorative justice principles and practices within MSJC, Marianist communities and Marianist ministries." This past month, two of our MSJC volunteers and 1 staff member became trained as circle keepers through a 4 day program at Precious Blood Ministry of Reconciliation in Chicago. MSJC hopes to continue to engage with using circle process, and other restorative practices, within our own organization. Additionally, we also hope to share these practices broadly within the Marianist Family to facilitate better sharing, listening, peacemaking and conflict resolution.
