Peace Prayer Service
Offered by Sr. Joanne Caniglia
We have moved from a culture with an emphasis on community to one of isolation. Cultural, social, religious, and political differences have created barriers. Neighborhoods have more "privacy fences" than community celebrations. Again this year, Sr. Joanne Caniglia has created a beautiful prayer for peace. May this prayer strengthen our commitment to build peace. Click here.

Water Witness provides an awareness raising opportunity that challenges us to examine the hidden costs of water, reflect from a third world perspective, view photos, and journal. We live in a world experiencing a scarcity of water, and we live in a country where water is often taken for granted or wasted. We can do something about that reality by examining our use of water.
