Living Peace - Hope

We are delighted to share with you the latest issue of Living Peace, a free publication of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Peace. The theme of the Spring 2018 issue is Hope. In this issue, sisters, associates, and friends of the Congregation share their insights and experiences on the abundance of hope in today's world.

We found hope in a number of peace and justice areas, as well as in community.  Sister Susan Dweitt's History and Roots piece reveals hope and faith in two young sisters who were sent to start a hospital in Bellingham, WA in 1890.  Sister Susan Francois finds inspiration from our founding story to resist hopelessness with the force of love.  Sister Katrina Alton introduces us to a few hopeful women in the UK called to resist the arms trade.  Associate Frank McCann finds hope in the movement organized by young people to seek common sense gun laws.  Assocaite Kate Chambers finds hope in the work of our sponsored ministries in New Jersey.  We also hear the story of building community in Seattle through Sunday dinners, and bringing hope to El Salvador through the power of education.

You will find some of these articles in our featured articles section, which you may share with your friends and on social networks more easily.

"The important thing is that we remain open to God as he reveals himself to us in the circumstances of life and do everything possible to bring the body of his Son to completion."
