A Mission Statement
The mission of Justice, Peace and Integrity of Creation is to assist us as we reflect on our relationship with God as manifested in the fruits of conversion in our lives. This is done with special regard to the daily choices made in the areas of justice, peace making and respect for all created things and people; as brothers and sisters of penance, bringing life to the Gospel and the Gospel to Life.
Cheboygan Compassionate Ministries
“Food for the Body, Hope for the Soul”
On December 22 the Lord’s Kitchen held its annual Christmas event which included playing games, having a sing along, and providing a dinner which was more like a feast. We served just under 200 meals and gave out more than 75 gifts as prizes for the games. We also had a raffle for a quilt, a grand prize drawing of three items and towards the end of the day we passed out hygiene products for people to take home.
This was all possible by your prayers and generous support of donating items for our games and grand prize drawing. On behalf of CCM “thank you”. You helped create a little heaven on earth for so many deserving and beautiful people.

From Our Rule of Life
Mindful that they are bearers of peace which must be built up unceasingly, they should seek out ways of unity and fraternal harmony through dialogue, trusting in the presence of the divine seed in everyone and in the transforming power of love and pardon. Messengers of perfect joy in every circumstance, they should strive to bring joy and hope to others. (Article 19)
Let them individually and collectively be in the forefront in promoting justice by the testimony of their human lives and their courageous initiatives. Especially in the field of public life, they should make definite choices in harmony with their faith. (Article 15)
