The JPIC Committee is the arm through which the Sisters of the Institute of the Blessed Virgin Mary focus and coordinate their work for justice. Challenged by the Direction Statement and imbued with the spirit of our foundress, Mary Ward, the committee's goal is to facilitate the embodiment the IBVM charism of Integrity, Justice and Freedom.

         Integrity challenges us to be who we say we are;

         Justice impels us to witness to and live out our IBVM values;

         Freedom invites us to be one with our God, to live relationally.

Located in various parts of the United States our sisters involve themselves in both direct action and systemic change regarding local, national and international issues.

As an international institute we network with other IBVMs around the world to work for a just world based on Gospel values.
