Dear JPIC Promoter,
We continue to remember in our prayers the intensions of the Amazon Synod as we consider what is our to do to courageously stand against the injustices of the Indigenous people and determine ways to move forward together. The important outcome for this final week will be determining a direction for a new path for the Church and for an Integral pathway.
