Racial Justice and the Catholic Church
Tuesdays, August 11 – September 8, 7:30-9pm or Wednesdays, Sept. 16 – Oct. 14, 7:30pm
St. Ignatius’ vision that we are men and women for others challenges us to seek to understand the depth of pain, anger, and hardship that racism has caused people of color in our country and the world. If we are to see this vision into reality, we must work for racial justice in our Catholic church and in our society. We invite you to take a step toward this vision by engaging in a six-week reflection and discussion group on Fr. Bryan Massingale’s Racial Justice and the Catholic Church. The text examines the presence of racism in the United States, exploring how Catholic social teaching has and has not been used to combat racism and promote reconciliation and justice.
