"Our goal includes bringing the perspective of the United Nations to our Dominican Family and to support global action for justice and peace nationally." -Dominican Leadership Conference

Sister Margaret Mayce, OP, the NGO (non-governmental organization) representative for the Dominican Leadership Conference at the UN, is the featured speaker at the monthly presentation sponsored by the Dominican Ecclesial Institute (D+E+I) in Albuquerque on Sunday, October 25, 1:00 -3:00 PM, UNM Continuing Education Building, 1634 University Blvd. NE (map).

The topic of Sister Margaret's address is "Sustaining God’s Creation," continuing with the D+E+I's reflections on Pope Francis’ encyclical on the environment Laudato Si.
