Fall Book Study: “Racial Justice and the Catholic Church” by Fr. Bryan Massingale

Fall Book Study: “Racial Justice and the Catholic Church” by Fr. Bryan Massingale

Join us for a six week discussion of Fr. Bryan Massingale’s Racial Justice and the Catholic Church. In the author’s words, “We all are wounded by the sin of racism… How can we struggle together against an evil that harms us all?” Racial Justice and the Catholic Church examines the presence of racism in America from its early history through the Civil Rights Movement and the election of Barack Obama. It also explores how Catholic social teaching has been used–and not used–to promote reconciliation and justice.

Sessions will run Wednesday, September 29th through Wednesday, November 3rd from 7-8:15pm and will be co-facilitated by Mary Lemire-Campion (Collaborative Coordinator of Pastoral Care), and Michelle Sterk Barrett (parishioner and Director of the J.D. Power Center for Liberal Arts in the World at the College of the Holy Cross).  We hope to hold all sessions in person at St. Paul Parish Hall, but will shift to an online format as needed…
