  • Season for Social Justice at Old St. Pat’s

    Pray for Peace —
    Practice Nonviolence
    Old St. Patrick’s Season for Social Justice

    Peace is not an end goal — it is a process, a journey that we can embrace with a lifestyle of nonviolence. Our faith connects us to a God of peace, healing, love, and justice. As people of God, we seek ways to pray for peace and practice nonviolence in our lives. The Gospel calls us to ask risky questions: how can we learn to act in ways that get at the root causes of poverty, homelessness, racism, and other social issues? What can we do to create greater peace and justice in our world and celebrate the love and glory of God? We are here to ask these questions and learn how to live the answers with the guidance of the Holy Spirit.

    Join us this September as Old St. Patrick’s enters into the Season for Social Justice focused on Peace and Nonviolence. The Season for Social Justice started in 2006, and we are excited to continue this powerful experience once again this year. We will engage in prayer and dialogue around implementing restorative justice, creating a culture of nonviolence in our schools, understanding international conflicts, and practicing a nonviolent life of faith. The Season for Social Justice will be celebrated in our Sunday liturgies in September as well as programming throughout the month. More details are to come, but for now, mark your calendars for these upcoming events!

    Wednesday, September 10 @ 7 p.m.
    Restorative Justice and Peace Circles

    What is restorative justice? Why is it important for healthy and peaceful communities?What does it have to do with the church? Working with folks from Community Renewal Society, we will learn about restorative justice and even experience what a peace circle process is all about. Come with questions and a desire to learn more about transforming the criminal justice system as well as our own informal systems of dealing with conflict and difficult questions.

    Wednesday, September 17 @ 7 p.m.

  • Season for Social Justice at Old St. Pat’s

    Pray for Peace —
    Practice Nonviolence
    Old St. Patrick’s Season for Social Justice

    Peace is not an end goal — it is a process, a journey that we can embrace with a lifestyle of nonviolence. Our faith connects us to a God of peace, healing, love, and justice. As people of God, we seek ways to pray for peace and practice nonviolence in our lives. The Gospel calls us to ask risky questions: how can we learn to act in ways that get at the root causes of poverty, homelessness, racism, and other social issues? What can we do to create greater peace and justice in our world and celebrate the love and glory of God? We are here to ask these questions and learn how to live the answers with the guidance of the Holy Spirit.

    Join us this September as Old St. Patrick’s enters into the Season for Social Justice focused on Peace and Nonviolence. The Season for Social Justice started in 2006, and we are excited to continue this powerful experience once again this year. We will engage in prayer and dialogue around implementing restorative justice, creating a culture of nonviolence in our schools, understanding international conflicts, and practicing a nonviolent life of faith. The Season for Social Justice will be celebrated in our Sunday liturgies in September as well as programming throughout the month. More details are to come, but for now, mark your calendars for these upcoming events!

    Wednesday, September 10 @ 7 p.m.
    Restorative Justice and Peace Circles

    What is restorative justice? Why is it important for healthy and peaceful communities?What does it have to do with the church? Working with folks from Community Renewal Society, we will learn about restorative justice and even experience what a peace circle process is all about. Come with questions and a desire to learn more about transforming the criminal justice system as well as our own informal systems of dealing with conflict and difficult questions.

    Wednesday, September 17 @ 7 p.m.
    A Culture of Nonviolence in our Schools

    Our children can learn from an early age how to practice nonviolence and maintain a culture of peace in schools and in our homes. Join us as we hear from North Lawndale College Prep about their work to use restorative practices with students and create a culture of peace within their high school. Families and students are especially welcome to explore this topic and engage in dialogue.
