First 100 Days
The Sisters of St. Joseph of Orange, together with their justice center, has created and shared a calendar called "100 Days of Prayer.” The idea is to include a daily prayer in keeping with the new administration’s first 100 days in office. The content encourages unity and reconciliation and offers support to people who may be vulnerable to policy changes. The prayers are short - only about 12 words long - so that they easily fit into a square on a calendar, and be remembered throughout the day.
