The Sisters of Our Lady of Apostles (OLA) and the Society of African Missions (SMA) share a Joint Justice Committee, and the OLA and SMA Justice Officers work in partnership for the promotion of Justice, Peace and Integrity of Creation (JPIC). Our strategic approach is to work collaboratively with others who share our values.
