Exploring the Role of Religious Life in Dismantling Racism

November 9, 2020

As part of Black Catholic History Month, the Conference of Major Superiors of Men encourages members — including the Viatorians — to consider registering for an intriguing new panel discussion.

The Catholic Theological Union begins its three-part series — tonight — with the Center for the Study of Consecrated Life and the National Black Sisters’ Conference. Its goal is to begin a conversation about the role of religious life in addressing and dismantling racial injustice.

The series is named, “A Call to Transformative Love in Religious Life: Stories of Race, Place and Grace,” and you can register here for tonight’s discussion, or, if you just want to register for all three sessions, click here.

Session 1 will address the journey of persons of color who entered predominantly Euro-centric congregations; in particular, their experiences of religious life, Church and society. The panelists are Sr. Anita Baird, DHM; Sr. Desiré Findlay, CSSF; Br. Ernest Miller, FSC; Fr. Jeffrey Ott, OP; Sr. Melinda Pellerin, SSJ; and Fr. Michael Thompson, SSJ.
