Loretto Peace Committee Stands As Witness
On behalf of Loretto and all, during the pandemic, members of Loretto’s Peace Committee stand as witnesses to our nation’s buildup of nuclear weapons. They are witnesses to the U.S. Congress’s blind increase of the military budget. They are witnesses to the war on the poor at our borders and across these United States.
They protest by keeping watch, standing with all the groups that are striving to keep the peace. They protest by telling others what is happening. They love one another, and they try to love our enemies. That’s the work of the Peace Committee in these days of quarantine and strife.
The current Loretto Peace Committee members are Karel Disponett CoL, Mary Jean Friel CoL, Pat Geier CoL, Loretto Co-member in process Allison Lemons, Mary Ann McGivern SL, Paulette Peterson CoL and Byron Plumley CoL.
