Bye Bye Commissions, Hello JPIC

At the October 2007 meeting of the National Fraternity Council, there was a decision to accept the recommendations of the ad hoc committee on the Commissions to restructure the Apostolic Commissions to one Justice and Peace and Integrity of Creation (JPIC) Committee.

The following is from the Proposal of the ad hoc committee on the Commissions, as revised and approved on October 5, 2007:
  • “The structure of the Apostolic Commissions will cease in its current form. In its place will be a Justice, Peace and Integrity of Creation (JPIC) team (up to 4 persons) with a keen awareness of Articles 14-19 of the SFO Rule and of the social issues before the USCCB.”

JPIC team members will be appointed by the National Executive Council. Regional fraternities are to collaborate with the JPIC team and information will be disseminated to the local fraternities by the Region.
