OLVM Sisters invite all to Campaign Nonviolence Service

As part of their regular Wednesdays for the World prayer service, the Our Lady of Victory Missionary Sisters will be joining the nationwide Campaign Nonviolence to protest racism, war, poverty and environmental destruction.

During this national event there will be 1,000 nonviolent actions taking place in all 50 states from Sept. 16 to Sept. 24.

The OLVM Sisters invite all to join their Campaign Nonviolence service, which will be held at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 20, in the Archbishop Noll Memorial Chapel on the Victory Noll campus at 1900 W. Park Drive in Huntington.

This campaign calls for nonviolent action and concrete policy shifts to end the culture of violence and injustice, and begin peacemaking. Through Campaign Nonviolence, separate movements are coming together to build a just, peaceful and sustainable world.

Campaign Nonviolence is a grassroots movement launched in September 2014, with more than 230 nonviolent actions held in every state of the nation. The following year, 370 actions took place. In 2016, these nonviolent actions grew to 760.

Campaign Nonviolence is sponsored by Pace e Bene, a non-profit organization committed to building a culture of peace and active nonviolence through shared understanding and partnerships to protect human rights, abolish war, end poverty, heal the planet — and to meet today’s profound spiritual task: build a just, peaceful and nonviolent world.

Pace e Bene was founded in 1989 by the Franciscan Friars of California.
