“We cannot tolerate or turn a blind eye to racism and exclusion in any form and yet claim to defend the sacredness of every human life.” 


The Archdiocese of Baltimore’s Journey to Racial Justice answers the call of Pope Francis to uncover and combat every form of racism and to come down hard on intolerance. The Journey to Racial Justice is an Archdiocese-wide initiative with a clear and direct roadmap to enact sustained culture change to eradicate racism and create a supportive, nurturing and evangelizing environment for all.

“With an abundance of prayer and the thoughtful participation of our Archdiocesan community, we now move forward to ensure we are not only a family of parishes that stands against hatred and racism, but a loving and welcoming community that celebrates the fact that we are all brothers and sisters in Christ, the Incarnate Son of God.”
