Nonviolence Awareness in Sylvania, OH

Posted by Ryan Hall
10.04.16

By Sr. Geraldine Nowak, osf with JPIC Network

Because we had several activities already on campus we decided to do something simple on behalf of Nonviolence.  We are the Sisters of St. Francis and sponsor Lourdes University which is on our grounds.  Peace signs were put up on campus on 9/18 and stayed up till 9/25.  They are simple.  They had the word “Peace” in English, Hebrew and Arabic.

All Campus folks, Sisters near and far, and our Associates near and far received a daily e-mail from Monday through Friday of that week with a quote about nonviolence.

I had several e-mails from folks on campus, near and far saying how meaningful the quote was.  One person said they could observe the week mindfully because the e-mail idea was simple and didn’t need to go anywhere or attend anything.

Our e-mails would have reached 300 people.  Another person e-mailed to say she put a favorite quote of hers on her facebook page!

Part of the CNV Week of Actions 2016
