Franciscan Value of the Year

Making Peace

Each year, Stritch focuses on one of the four Franciscan values we cherish. This year, we are focusing on the value of Making Peace

To practice this value we will: 

  • Learn techniques to help us become empathic listeners

  • Educate ourselves around issues of conflict  

    • Change our own habits so that we may become better peace makers

    • Challenge/Encourage others through justice advocacy 

  • Explore through texts like Nostra Aetate our common connections through our differences

  • Engage in a small group setting to pray and talk about what making peace means to us

  • Collaborate with others in the community to learn about and create opportunities for peace
