Haiti struck by Hurricane Matthew

In early October, Hurricane Matthew battered the southern coast of the island, destroying homes, schools, small businesses and farm operations. Many people have asked us how they can help the Haitian people deal with this new trial.
For those of our families, friends and benefactors who would like to make a financial contribution to the works of the Sisters of Saint Anne in Haiti to improve the lives of Haitians, click here to make your donation.

Sustainable development: The 17 goals

On September 25, 2015, the United Nations adopted a new development program consisting of 17 goals. All countries, institutions and peoples will be working toward these goals for the 2030 horizon. From 2012 to 2015, we took part in United Nations discussions and surveys and sent feedback to contribute to defining the kind of world we want and the new agenda for development with a set of 17 Sustainable Development Goals for 2015-2030. The SSA Social Justice Network has integrated this sustainable development program into its 2015-2016 direction.

Pope Francis, World Day of Peace, January 1, 2017

“All of us want peace. Many people build it day by day through small gestures and acts; many of them are suffering, yet patiently persevere in their efforts to be peacemakers”. In 2017, may we dedicate ourselves prayerfully and actively to banishing violence from our hearts, words and deeds, and to becoming nonviolent people and to building nonviolent communities that care for our common home. “Nothing is impossible if we turn to God in prayer. Everyone can be an artisan of peace”.
