A 2020 Adult Faith Formation Series, a joint venture of St. Camillus, Resurrection, St. John the Baptist Catholic, and St. Patrick’s churches.
You are invited come along on an important journey over several months that will help us all to better understand how the Gospel of Jesus informs our thinking, words, and actions in relation to anti-black racism. Presentations and discussions will be anchored in what we profess as Christians and in our rich Catholic social teachings. You and others will explore what can help us personally and as church to be advocates for justice and equality.
…wherever any minority is persecuted and marginalized because of its religious convictions or ethnic identity, the wellbeing of society as a whole is endangered and each one of us must feel affected. Pope Francis
