Take Action!

Has your chapter planned an action for Campaign Nonviolence week, September 18-25?

See http://www.paceebene.org/ for ideas or to find a local action to join.

In support of Education

Emusoi Center in Arusha, Tanzania (http://emusoicentre.co.tz/), founded by Sr. Mary Vertucci MM, continues to help Maasai girls get an education and delay marriage and child-bearing until they’re ready, but needs scholarships for fees and books for secondary school and college. Donations should be sent through the Maryknoll Sisters.

Caminando Por La Paz – Guatemala (http://www.caminandogua.org/) needs angels! $500/year or $50/month supports the education of one student. Angels receive periodic  information from the student they sponsor. Your contributions in any amount will assist greatly in Caminando’s efforts to continue the wonderful work initiated by founder Father Thomas Goekler, MM.
