Yesterday, October 2, we commemorated the International Day of Non-Violence.
Part of our mission is to achieve peace worldwide, and that's a commitment our Project Partners & Staff relate to.
Here, a picture of the LAC Staff and Salve Regina Students that participated in the El salvador Non-Violence Virtual Immersion last May.

On September 23-24, members of the IPM Cleveland Staff were thrilled to be back in the city of our founding ~ Saint Louis, Missouri ~ during our first visit back since the COVID-19 global pandemic turned our world upside down.

We were especially grateful to gather together for a special reception with members of IPM’s Metropolitan Saint Louis Advisory Council and Friends graciously hosted at Eden Theological Seminary on Friday evening. The evening included an organization update from IPM CEO Joe Cistone and special presentation of IPM’s David N. Westcott Outstanding Volunteer Award to Mark Schulte for his many years of extraordinary volunteer service and generous support to IPM’s mission nurturing justice, peace, and hope around the world.

We look forward to being back in Saint Louis in the coming month with IPM’s Regional Director for South Asia, Mahesh Upadhyaya, who will share the inspiring work of our remarkable Project Partners in India and Nepal. Please stay posted on our social media for upcoming details soon!

Nice to see you all together 🙏

In Loving Remembrance of Flo Saeger

It was with cherished memories and heartfelt gratitude that members of the IPM Family gathered together this past weekend at Christ Lutheran Church in the city of our founding ~ Saint Louis, Missouri ~ to join in celebrating the remarkable life, light, and love of IPM Former International Executive Board Chairwoman, Flo Saeger, who passed away peacefully earlier this summer with her family by her side, just hours after what would have been her 60th wedding anniversary to the late Vic Saeger.

As many of you know, Flo served as the Chair of IPM’s Board at a critical time in our organizational development. She was the driving force behind the most active moments of our Metropolitan Saint Louis Advisory Council and travelled, along with Vic, on Immersion Experiences in El Salvador, Kenya, Nepal, Nicaragua, and the Wind River Reservation in Wyoming, USA. They made a remarkable pair in their extraordinary dedication to IPM’s work to nurture a more equitable, inclusive, and peace-filled world and will forever remain an inspiration to all of us.

Please continue to keep Flo and the entire Saeger Family in your thoughts, prayers, and meditation practices during this still difficult time of loss and remembrance of a life well lived.
