The Gift of Conversation in Justice Ministry

Maurice Lange, the newly-hired Director of the Justice and Peace Office, facilitated eleven very meaningful conversations with small groups of Presentation Sisters and Friends of Nano (FON).
Justice in Action
Minerva Briones, on behalf of the United Methodist Women National Office, presented Sister Sharon Altendorf with a Special Mission Recognition pin and certificate. It was given in recognition of her “gift for ministries with women, children and youth.”
16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence
The 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence Campaign begins on November 25, 2018, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, and concludes on December 10, 2018, Human Rights Day.
The 16-Day Campaign opposing violence against women is an important opportunity to raise awareness and call for changes at an international, national and local level to make women and children safe from abuse.
Anti- Human Trafficking
As Presentation Sisters we keep the Catholic Social Teaching at the heart of our mission. All people are made in the image and likeness of God and deserve unconditional love and respect. We advocate for protection of all people, and pray for all those impacted by human trafficking, as well as for the end of human trafficking. The U.S. Catholic Sisters Against Human Trafficking (USCSAHT) put together a Newsletter promoting Awareness, Advocacy and Action, click HERE to read more.
