How Does the Earth?

The Sisters of St. Joseph of Toronto have a Shared Ministerial Commitment: "We seek to nurture community with our neighbour, especially with the homeless, the alienated, the economically poor, women at risk and our wounded earth." The following song expresses their call to everyone: "Come let us help this precious planet live!"

How does the Earth? Is it alive and thriving?
How does the Earth? Is it alive and well?
How clear the waters? How pure the rain?
How green the forest? How tall the grain?
How does the Earth?

City Hall's Peace Garden: Gathering to Remember 1945 Bombing

To commemorate the 65th anniversary of the 1945 bombing of Hiroshima, the City of Toronto proclaimed Aug. 6, 2010 to be 'Hiroshima Day' and the Hiroshima Day Coalition held an event at City Hall's Peace Garden.

On the program, the Coalition had noted: "Thousands of Canadians will be joining millions around the world to remember the innocent lives that were lost in 1945 and those that continue to suffer today. We shall never forget as we remind the world that nuclear weapons must be abolished once and for all."

Catholic Social Teaching: Respecting Human Dignity

“He has risen indeed! This is the reason for our hope!” read the program cover for a “Day on Catholic Social Teaching.” On March 29, Fr. Jack Costello, S.J. (photo at right) spoke at Morrow Park at the invitation of the Office for Justice, Peace and the Integrity of Creation.  After greeting the audience of both Sisters and Associates, Sister Anne Lemire introduced Fr. Costello, who urged us to consider Catholic social thinking rather than Catholic social teaching, since teaching is performed by the few while thinking is the domain of us all.
