Join us as we kick off Black History Month with Sr. Irma Dillard, RSCJ. To celebrate, we are hosting two events - a workshop on Saturday and a special liturgy on Sunday where Sr. Irma will be our guest homilist. Both events will have an online option, although we encourage you to join us in person if able to get the full experience of Sr. Irma's dynamic personality and wisdom. Masks are required for everyone attending in-person.
Saturday, February 5, 2022 - 10am to noon:
History of Institutional-Structural-Systemic Racial Injustice in our U.S. Catholic Church
Tired of Talking! What if White People Ended Racism!
Today our country is divided. Our Church is divided.
2020 was a tumultuous year
that saw the onset of a deadly pandemic,
widespread protests over systemic racism,
the rise of white supremacy—and a deeply contentious election!
Where is our Church?
How has racism impacted your life now that our world has been turned topsy-turvy?
2021 was a continuation of 2020 due to the Delta variant and now the Omicron variant.
The justice system saw a small change in delivering justice to POC.
More demonstrations took place. More division occurred.
There is no returning back to normal.
There is no blue-print/plan for how to deal with what is happening in our country and in our world.
Where is the gospel?
Sunday, February 6, 2022 - 5pm: Sunday Mass
