Sr Pat Connolly DC writes the November feature for the Faith and Justice blog about the UN Millennium Development Goals from the perspective of her work at the UN.
The Center for FaithJustice, with roots in the Eastern Province of the Congregation of the Mission, has invited eight people to contribute to a monthly series about the United Nations Millennium Goals. On the first Tuesday of each month from November through June we will consider the progress and challenges of one of the eight Millennium Goals through the eyes of a writer involved in the particular issue, such as achieving universal primary education, improving maternal health, or eradicating HIV/AIDS.
The Center for Faith and Justice was nurtured in its early years in the Vincentian Family, when founder-president Sean Sanford was Executive Director at St. Joe’s Seminary and the Vincentian Youth and Young Adult Center in New Jersey.
