Living Peace Summer 2015 CoverLiving Peace - Summer 2015 Issue
Breathing New Life into an Inheritance of Peace

Read the latest issue of our biannual Congregation Magazine, Living Peace. The theme of this issue, Breathing New Life into an Inheritance of Peace. The charism of the Sisters of St Joseph of Peace is peace through justice, expressed more fully in the tagline on our website and the front cover of this publication, “Pursuing justice, we seek God’s gift of peace;” or in the words of the Congregation’s founder, Margaret Anna Cusack, which appear on the Congregation’s letterhead: “The very name Sisters of Peace will, it is hoped, inspire the desire of peace and a love for it.” It is this charism, the continual examining and living of it, that is the inheritance we explore in this issue.
