IPJC events, prayer & more!
IPJC celebrates Laudato Si'!
With Pope Francis we praise God present in the whole universe.
We recommit ourselves to care for our earth,
especially for those who are most impacted by ecological destruction.
We invite you to join us in building community and creating change.
We may not be changing the world overnight with
this ministry of socially responsible investing, but we are
making a difference. In its 21st year, NWCRI brought
its commitment to create a just and sustainable global
community to the boardrooms of 55 corporations with 22
shareholder resolutions and in over 70 dialogues!
We are proud and pleased to share with you the ministry accomplishments of the Intercommunity
Peace and Justice Center (IPJC) and to ask you to partner with and contribute to this unique ministry
of peace and justice.
As you read our report, reflect on the global outreach, the scope of our work, the small staff and what
is accomplished with minimal resources. Then, imagine what would be possible if we all invested in
this ministry in a new and deeper way?
Women’s Justice Circles partner low-income women with women collaborators from parishes, health care, educational settings and other community groups for the purpose of empowering low-income women to take action on an issue important to them and their families.

Did you miss the Women's Convocation V, or would you like to see Grace on the Margins again? Well, now you can with the "new" professionally re-edited DVD!
"Searching for meaning as a woman in the church and confronted with the challenges of a people and planet in peril, Grace's cries for help are answered by Hildegard of Bingen, Joan of Arc, Sojourner Truth and Our Lady of Guadalupe, who lead her on a journey of the heart to experience Grace on the Margins!"
DVDs are $15.00 each.
Would you like to perform Grace on the Margins at your school or in your community? The script and score are available!
IPJC created a video to inspire individuals and groups to work to stop human trafficking and modern day slavery. It was presented for the Cascadia Center Camp Brotherhood Levine & Treacy "Peace and Harmony" Award, of which IPJC was the 2012 honoree.
