Our Issues

The OMI Justice, Peace, and Integrity of Creation (JPIC) initiative works to promote human dignity and respect for God’s creation through our faith-consistent investment principles, advocacy with corporations and governments, educational outreach, and grassroots organizing in Oblate parishes.

Human Dignity

In the Catechism of the Catholic Church, the dignity of the human person is rooted in his or her creation in the image and likeness of God. Our advocacy for an ethic of Consistent Life, Social and Economic Justice, and the Integrity of Creation flow from this understanding.

Oblate Outreach & Animation

As part of our outreach and animation program we conduct workshops at Oblate mission centers, formation houses, shrines and retreat houses and parishes. We will continue to reflect and act on issues that directly impact Oblate ministries and explore how they fit within Oblate charism.

Integrity of Creation

Protecting the earth’s bounty and encouraging good stewardship of our environment is an important part of our work. We are working to ‘green’ the Oblate congregation, help people in the pews protect the environment, protect endangered ecosystems, fight climate change, protect our planet’s precious supply of water, keep extractive industries in balance, and more.

Faith Consistent Investing

Investing according to one’s faith to promote peace, justice, equality, and a healthy global environment is a powerful way to help others. We work toward more a more just and sustainable marketplace through our faith consistent investing program.
