International Day of Peace Conversations - Sister Janet Ryan

On today’s podcast, host Marsha Thrall is joined by Sister Janet Ryan, OSF. Sister Janet has been a Franciscan sister of Clinton, Iowa since 2005, and is originally from Boston. She has been ministering at Precious Blood Ministry of Reconciliation (PBMR) since 2014. She assists adults in earning their high school diploma, offers peace circles in the community and circle trainings at PBMR. Sister Janet has a Communications degree from the University of Connecticut and a Master's degree in Pastoral Ministry from St. John's Seminary in Boston. She is passionate about living and promoting nonviolence and restorative justice.


Today’s conversation will focus on the ways in which Sister Janet’s community at Precious Blood Ministry of Reconciliation will be celebrating both Campaign Non-Violence from September 21, 2023 to October 2, 2023, and also how Precious Blood Ministry will be celebrating the International Day of Peace.
