SMA Commitment
At its core Justice, Peace and Integrity of Creation (JPIC) concerns right relationships; with God, withself, with our fellow humans, with institutions and with all creation. JPIC is integral to and constitutive of evangelisation. Commitment to JPIC demands an authentic Gospel-based response, elaborated in Catholic Social Teaching, to what mission Means in the complex and interdependent world we live in today.

Justice and Peace is directed towards the transformation of structures, policies and practices which diminish and destroy the integrity of creation and the possibility of a true quality of life for all, especially the poor and marginalised.“

Bishop Kevin Dowling, South Africa   

“The spirituality of Justice and Peace is a way of life modelled on the example of Jesus, and is rooted in the Scriptures and the social teaching of the Church, whose purpose is the transformation of society.”

Pete Henriot SJ
