Justice, Peace and Integrity Committee Pledge Support to Nuclear Disarmament

As we observe the 77th anniversary of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima, Japan, on August 6, we wish to call attention to a pastoral letter titled “Living in the Light of Christ’s Peace: A Conversation Toward Nuclear Disarmament.” In this letter, Archbishop John C. Wester of the Archdiocese of Sante Fe, New Mexico, emphasizes the urgent need for nuclear disarmament and encourages other bishops to join this conversation. The Justice, Peace and Integrity Committee of the Sisters of the Order of Saint Benedict of St. Joseph, Minn., and the Franciscan Sisters of Little Falls, Little Falls, Minn., pledge our prayerful support.
