This service of education in institutions includes instruction, but emphasizes the formation of the whole person,
formation for social and collective life, accompaniment of the faith, with a definite goal: education for justice in faith.

Being Artisans of Hope in Our Blessed and Broken World

Statement of JPIC Commitment

Society of the Sacred Heart

Our world is at an historic paradoxical moment. It holds new possibilities while it is also wrought with inequality, suffering, and violence. As such, we are citizens of a world that is both broken and blessed. We feel profoundly the cry of the poor and the pain of the earth. We desire to participate in the care of “our common home” – working against injustices, constructing peaceful interrelationships, and protecting the earth.
