Civic engagement is a responsibility.  The CSJ Community firmly believes that an active responsibility of our faith is thoughtful participation and engagement in the civic process.  2020 is an election year, so how do we thoughtfully and faithfully engage as people of faith and citizens.

The St. Paul Province is working with the U.S. Federation of the Sisters of St. Joseph to offer simple and timely reflections in the weeks leading up to the Nov. 3rd elections. We encourage you to take a moment each week to pause and reflect on these questions.

WEEK 2: Review the Week 2 Reflection.

WEEK 3: Review the Week 3 Reflection.

WEEK 4: Review the Week 4 Reflection.

Thank you also for sharing/emailing/posting/tweeting these reflections for others to see, as well.
