Justice, Peace & the Integrity of Creation
Justice, Peace & the Integrity of Creation are words that were first used by the World Council of Churches (WCC) in an appeal to all Christian churches to make public commitments and to undertake common action on threats to life. The phrase JPIC is a way of describing the Christian’s responsibility to make God’s reign visible in the world by bringing Good News to the poor and excluded, exposing oppression and living in solidarity with those on the edges of society.
We commit our energies and resources:
to promote the dignity and liberation of all, especially women and children
to challenge unjust systems and structures
to stand with those on the edges of society
to show reverent care for the earth and all creation
In its commitment to Justice, Peace & the Integrity of Creation, the Institute of the Blessed Virgin Mary acts in solidarity with other organizations and groups that share similar aims. These include other religious congregations, parish and diocesan organizations, ecumenical groups and other Faith Traditions.
