img_6145.jpgSisters Mary Ann Spanjers, OSF, Leonette Kochan, OSF, Mardelle Meinholz, OSF, Marlita Henseler, OSF, and Rosalyn Muraski, OSF, researched, planned, and presented materials.  

The goal of the study is:

That we, Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity, deepen our understanding of Gospel Peace so as to become active persons of peace.

Community members will concentrate on the following monthly themes from August 2009 to May 2010:

  • Scriptural Foundation and Nonviolent Peace Education
  • The Problem of Evil
  • Creation and Franciscanism
  • Salvation in Christ
  • The Incarnation
  • World Day of Peace and Pacem In Terris
  • Reconciliation
  • Inner Peace and Prayer from the Catechism of the Catholic Church
  • Contemporary situations, current dvds viewed with the eyes of  Gospel peace

In addition to learning about the various components of an in-depth Peace Study, the Franciscan Sisters also heard presentations on these topics:
