Scarboro Missions JPIC Office closes after 37 years
At the end of December 2017 the JPIC Office was closed as part of Scarboro Missions’ process of transition. You are invited to read about the history of the JPO/JPIC Office in the final issue of Scarboro Missions magazine, which was published in September 2018 and celebrates the 100th anniversary of the Scarboro Foreign Mission Society.
In February 2018 Karen Van Loon, coordinator of the JPIC Office since 1999, began work with Faith & the Common Good (FCG) coordinating their new program, Cultivating Care for Our Common Home for Catholic parishes or groups in Toronto who would like to explore and respond more deeply to Pope Francis’ call to care for our common home. She may be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Starting in 2018 Fr. Jack Lynch email@example.com will be the contact person at Scarboro Missions for any JPIC related inquiries.
