By Rosemary Thompson with the P. Francis Murphy Initiative for Justice and Peace

At the P. Francis Murphy Initiative for Justice and Peace  ( www.pfmjpi.org ), we celebrate the work of 14 Catholic religious Orders of men and women.  These women and men have dedicated their lives to supporting the poor, alleviating suffering and eliminating poverty.

We work toward a more peaceful world. Our commitment  is to nonviolence in education, worship, practiceand advocacy.

The Murphy Initiative is thrilled to be an active part of Campaign Nonviolence.  One of the hats I wear in my capacity of Executive Director is to sit on the board of Central Maryland Ecumenical Council .

On Tuesday March 18,2014  I was invited to offer  a presentation of Campaign Nonviolence to the Central Maryland Ecumenical Council (www.cmecouncil.org)  board and a resolution was passed unanimously.  It was agreed that the organization will commit to the Campaign , promote the work  and promise at least one creative action in September.

Central Maryland Ecumenical Council is an active voice for peace, justice and environmental sustainability among the Christian Communities of the Greater Baltimore and Washington DC area.  CMEC was created by the Ecumenical Leadership Group to inform these faith leaders of the pressing issues of our time.

The Executive Director ( Gary Gillespie ) of CMEC  took the resolution to the Ecumenical Leadership Group.  ELG has also made a commitment to the Campaign.  What a delight it was to receive a phone call from  my Bishop ~ Catholic Urban Vicar Denis Madden to get more information  about this dynamic effort .
