Peace is the fruit of love, a love that is also justice. But to grow in love requires work — hard work. And it can bring pain because it implies loss — loss of the certitudes and comforts that shelter and define us.” –Jean Vanier
Cortina couldn’t exist without a diverse, yet strong community of members and leadership. Our current Cortinians come from different backgrounds and have a vast variety of perspectives and experiences. One of the most important aspects of Cortina is the respectful sharing of ideas, beliefs, and experiences between its members. This process of sharing and storytelling is an integral part of our Cortina classes, our weekly Formation Time meetings, and our weekly newsletters. Take a minute to learn more about what our community looks like.
