The Justice, Peace & Integrity of Creation (JPIC) Office of the North American Province (NAP) was founded in 1993 in the Spirit of Founder St. Daniel Comboni who passionately trumpeted causes for justice throughout his life. Today, the working principles of the office are outlined in our Guidelines, infused in our yearly Action Plan, and aligned with Catholic Social Teaching. The modern Catholic Social Teaching has been articulated through a tradition of papal, conciliar, and episcopal documents. As a working department of the North American Province, the JPIC Office seeks a closer collaboration with Comboni provinces around the world, and especially with the Americas, our “partners in the hemisphere.” One of our main goals is to increase our participation at the United Nations through our memberships with VIVAT International and AFJN which give us a point of access. We support and work closely with these partners, Africa Faith & Justice Network (AFJN) in Washington, D.C., Africa Europe Faith & Justice Network (AEFJN) in Brussels, and VIVAT International in New York City, and with NGOs based in Washington, D.C.

Our Top Priorities

In our ministry, the Comboni Missionaries confront a variety of social justice, peace and ecological issues. Problems include land grabbing, trafficking in persons, ethnic and religious conflicts, gender violence, corrupt political systems, environmental degradation, poverty, and more. Our hope is that by learning about JPIC issues, you will feel empowered to make a change in your life or in the lives of others.

Becoming A Missionary

“Our life, a Missionary’s life, is a combination of grief and enjoyment, exhaustion and hope, suffering and consolation. We work with our hands and our heads; we travel on foot and in canoes. We study, we sweat, we suffer, we rejoice. This is all that Providence wants of us.”

– St. Daniel Comboni
