How Can We Help to Eradicate Poverty?
During the JPIC Moment at the fraternity meeting of July 9, we distributed a sheet that detailed some facts about poverty in Canada and particularly PEI.
For your JPIC thoughts and actions of July and August, we asked you to think about actions that we can do as Secular Franciscans that will promote progress towards eradicating poverty.
Please briefly write your suggestion(s) for action on a piece of paper and bring it with you to our fraternity meeting on September 10. We will have a JPIC box set up to collect these and we will read a couple aloud at the meeting. All of the suggestions will be published in a future newsletter.

- … to do justice
- … to love tenderly and
- … to walk humbly with your God.” (Micah 6:8)
