This committee of Sisters and Associates was founded in 1998 and had been working together until the work came to completion in June of 2018. In that time they addressed – to heal – the many ways violence is expressed in our society.
Healing Violence Committee Mandate
Rooted in the words of our Mission Statement, i.e.
- in response to the needs of the times
- to empower others, especially the poor and oppressed, to achieve a quality of life in keeping with their human dignity
- through promotion of structures and relationships of equality and mutuality
We move to concrete action to eradicate violence, especially against women and children.
We aim to raise awareness, to change attitudes and to take action to promote healing at 3 levels: personal, congregational, and societal, through education, networking and bursaries.
