The peace of Christ be with you! 
In this time of suffering in our world which has been made worse by the violence of systemic injustice such as poverty and racism, we the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word invite ourselves, those who minister with us, associates, and friends to enter more deeply into the spirit of Gospel Nonviolence.  

We encourage you to participate in the virtual Campaign Nonviolence conference with main content on Saturday, August 8, 2020, starting at 11 am Central time. One can also attend the Vigil on August 6 and Nonviolence Training on August 7. See schedule

THE CAMPAIGN NONVIOLENCE NATIONAL CONFERENCE: EMBRACING THE NONVIOLENT SHIFT.  Marking the 75 Anniversary of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.  “In this time of great transition ushered in by a worldwide crisis, nonviolence offers us what we need right now: a vision, strategies, and practices that will equip us to live and lead in the direction of personal and societal transformation. At this conference, you will experience the wisdom of nonviolence visionaries, scholars and practitioners who will share their expertise from a wide variety of fields. They will offer concrete pathways to build the transformed world our hearts long for, a world free from the violence of racism, poverty, war and the environmental crisis.” Some of the speakers are Rev. Richard Rohr, The Center for Action and Contemplation: Dr. Erica Chenoweth, Harvard University; Dr. Ira Helfand, International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons; and Rev. John Dear, Pace e Bene.
