The purpose of the gathering was to share common values and initiatives and to explore ways that the congregation might collaborate with city initiatives.

Various topics including homelessness, affordable housing, immigration, climate and environmental initiatives were discussed. Sister Katie also noted that IHM has a powerhouse of prayer ministers at OLP and invited her to ask for spiritual support on her endeavors.
