Our solidarity with the cry of the poor and the cry of the Earth deepens our commitment to bring fuller life to others and urges us to work to sustain all of life by caring for our common home, providing for the poor, and urges us to embrace the call to ecological conversion.
“It is not possible to remain indifferent before the knowledge that human beings are bought and sold like goods” (Pope Francis March 5,2014)
As a congregation we have committed ourselves to do all that we can to stop this “crime against humanity” by reaching out to victims, empowering survivors, educating the public, and partnering with governments, NGO, organizations and other religious congregations who are committed to make a difference.
