Justice and Peace ...an integral dimension of Franciscan life

The pursuit of Justice, Peace and Integrity of Creation (JPIC) is one of the chief priorities of the Holy Name Province and flows naturally from the life of St. Francis and the Franciscan movement that he inspired in pursuit of the Gospel Life. More


Immigration Lenten Toolkit...Bulletin/Newsletter Inserts

Justice for Immigrants invites us to join other people of faith in making the concerns of immigrant families a focus of prayer, sacrifice, and action during Lent. JFI has created a Lenten Toolkit with suggested actions designed to help us reflect on the biblical call to welcome the stranger and act to make immigrant justice a reality.

The toolkit includes weekly newsletter/bulletin inserts for use in your ministry, as well as a Lenten calendar encouraging daily calls to key representatives expressing our support for immigration reform.  Links to the most recent insert and to the Lenten calendar follow:

WEEK 6 (April 13-19) Root Causes of Forced Migration

Lenten Calendar

For access to all the components of the Lenten toolkit, visit the HNP JPIC Seasonal Programs page.

May our efforts this Lent help to bring our immigrant brothers and sisters out of the shadows.
