On Monday, July 15, many in the CSJ community came together to plant a Japanese Cherry Blossom Tree. Initiated by the desire to offset our carbon footprint caused by traveling to Chapter, this project was a partnership between our Justice Office and the Saint Paul – Nagasaki Sister City Committee (who also recently was part of the July Peace Prayer). We gathered to reflect on building bridges and peace through cultural understanding and said prayers for many, including our own Sisters in Japan. Additional trees will be planted in the future.
