Fr. Ed Kilianski and the Provincial Council write the following:
Mark Peters, US Province director of Justice, Peace and Reconciliation, is preparing for his retirement. The Provincial Council thought it an opportune moment to survey SCJs about the province’s approach to JPR issues and determine how to best move forward. In doing so, the council recognizes and celebrates the work continuing to be done in our ministries to address social concerns, especially through direct service. The goal of this survey is to get a sense of how the province as a whole would like to address JPR concerns. Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts, and thank you for all that you do to promote social justice!
