The SNJM Water-Ecology Committee grew out of the former SNJM Justice & Peace Network, which initiated the Corporate Stand on water. The latter was adopted by the Congregation in 2008.
The committee uses a “Learn, Pray, Act” approach. A few times throughout the year, the committee proposes reflections on a select theme or topic with the goal of promoting continued questioning about water. It also hopes to encourage individual and collective action in each region.
The Water-Ecology Committee is composed of the following SNJM affiliates: Dorothy Guha (QC), Pat Iwata (OR) and Sharon Elliot (WA) and sisters Josephine Chudzik (Manitoba), Mary Annette Dworshak (U.S.-Ontario) and Yvonne Massicotte (Manitoba).
