Justice Peace & Integrity of Creation
JPIC – TSSF
Reflection
Open our hearts through scripture,
prayer, theology and liturgy.
Every element of creation is a gift
of God and a revelation of God.
Education
Open our minds to learn and teach the
issues before us. Deepen our
understanding of the threats to God’s
creation. Connect sustainable practices
with eco-justice, economics and social
justice.
Action
Open our hands to implement projects
that protect, heal and honor all life.
Through our works, we are known
to the world.
