Notre Dame, Ind. — JusticeCraft, an intensive, weeklong seminar sponsored by the Sisters of the Holy Cross and the Holy Cross International Justice Office, prepares religious and lay participants to lead and coordinate justice ministries in congregations, in parishes and on college campuses. The program features an internationally recognized faculty and hosts participants from around the world.

This year’s program will be held Sunday, May 18, through Sunday, May 25, at Saint Mary’s, Notre Dame, Ind. For program information and to register online, visit JusticeCraft on this site or the Holy Cross International Justice Office. You may also register by contacting Dana Taylor at dtaylor@cscsisters.org. Registrations will be accepted through April 12.

JusticeCraft participants will engage in interactive sessions on the theology and spirituality of justice ministry, ecological sustainability, global economic justice, peacemaking and nonviolence, and rituals that shape and sustain the work of justice. They also will learn practical, proven models and strategies to use in the work of creating a peaceful, just and sustainable society.

JusticeCraft seminars, also held in 2012, 2010, 2007 and 2005, are an outgrowth of the longstanding commitment of the Sisters of the Holy Cross and the family of Holy Cross sisters, brothers and priests to work for systemic change by responding to the injustices of the times and standing in solidarity with God’s suffering people.

The Holy Cross International Justice Office was created in 2000 to animate and unite the social justice work of the four congregations of Holy Cross (sisters, brothers and priests) and create a well-informed, united, public Holy Cross voice to impact critical justice issues of our time. An intercongregational executive committee oversees the work of the office.
