Identify, Build and Witness

Join JPIC promoters from across the country for a national gathering on justice and peace efforts for men’s religious institutes. Using the lens of immigration to Identify, Build, and Witness, we will explore what JPIC promoters are doing to create systemic change, while building our national network for collaborative strategic action. While immigration will serve as the lens, we will discuss and learn about a broad range of JPIC issues.  

All CMSM JPIC promoters are welcome. This includes religious and laity who run JPIC offices, sit on JPIC committees, or otherwise support JPIC efforts.  

Topics could include pastoral accompaniment and solidarity, role of religious, engagement with dioceses, spiritual vision of migration, strategic collaborative efforts, and issues that affect migration and migrants (climate change, economic justice, racism, and militarization).
