Racism & the Catholic Church

April 14 @ 8:30 am - 10:30 pm EDT

Pope Francis said, “Racism today is the ultimate evil in our world.”

Dr. Greer G. Gordon’s back by popular demand following the Call to Action Conference this past October. Greer will continue our exploration of Racism in the Catholic Church, specifically here in Baltimore.

We invite you to join us for a prayerful, closed-door (confidential), conversation on the ways in which the Roman Catholic Community can be active in addressing racism and discrimination. We welcome every interested person to this conversation, and hope that each parish, and academic institution of the Archdiocese of Baltimore will send at least two representatives to participate. Rooted in the Social Teachings of the Church, the day will offer insights into: the nature of discrimination and racism; the Church’s understanding of racism as a sin; tools for identifying and addressing racism; and the development of a practical action plan. (See announcement).

Included in the day will be a presentation by Baltimore’s Racial Justice Circle. The Racial Justice Circle [RJC] is “Bridging the Racial Divide with Honest Conversations on Racism.” The RJC is committed to hold these Honest Conversations in parishes across the Baltimore Archdiocese. To learn more about this movement, call RJC at 443-275-1180.
