Inherent Dignity

Today, on the U.N. World Day Against Trafficking in Persons, we are reminded of the advocacy guidebook provided by the Sisters of Mercy, "Inherent Dignity."  Last year, Global Sisters Report (GSR) provided this story about the July 30 commemoration and the release of the guidebook.  This year, GSR published a series of stories, including this one, to remind us of the various ways in which women religious work to end human trafficking.  More information is also available at the "Talitha Kum" website of the UISG (here).

From Denville to Uganda: 2019

You may recall this post from 2017 in which we shared with you the ministry that Ben Duphiney, then a senior at Morris Catholic High School in Denville, was doing in collaboration with then-ACS student Sister Mary Cecilia Akol in Uganda, Africa.  This year, Ben and his group are being joined in their mission by Sister of Christian Charity John Paul Thorley, math teacher at Morris Catholic.  We are grateful to Sister John Paul for sharing these photos with us.  Don't forget to follow the group's blog, where you will find photos and stories.  We continue our prayers for "Mission Madera" -- for the children, the families, the missionaries, the women religious and all who serve there.
