     The Celebration of the Year of Justice and Peace in our Congregation challenges us to address specific issues, which we think are included in the concepts presented here. We have prepared this calendar for the year 2015, which takes into account some topics of Justice and Peace. The United Nations has announced some days emphasizing some aspects of justice and peace. Church has own dates to emphasize different aspects of Social Teaching or support the International or World celebrations.

     That is why we offer you this opportunity to plan the activities in your own calendar in relation to the initiatives of the Church or the UN. It would be good to find a day in the month in which you could invite the La Salettes or our Laity for prayer, or for specific activities, or to raise awareness concerning these issues. You might also use other days, or feasts (e.g., national or local celebrations) to talk about, to pray about, to engage in activities concerning, or to celebrate Justice and Peace. [We give only some examples  the originator of the particular feast. UN - United Nations; CC – Catholic Church] On the main page you can finde some reflections. Go to JPIC Logo
