8-week virtual study on Racism, Justice, and Equality

Observing the unprecedented level of protests demanding racial equality, in the wake of the murder of George Floyd, Santa Teresa Church is calling all Catholic Christians and especially, our parishioners, to educate ourselves about racism.

Our parish will be offering an 8-week program beginning August 12th at 6:45 pm via Zoom, based on the United States Catholic Conference of Bishops’ Document – “Open Wide Your Hearts” addressing racism and the need to eliminate it. Each session will be about 90-minutes and offer opportunities to learn, ask questions, share experiences, pray, sing, hear scripture, and reflect.

Racism is not easy for most of us to talk about, know what to say about it and, to be truthful, even want to talk about it at all. We aim to make this series a safe place to explore our thoughts, attitudes, and emotions and faith beliefs about this touchy subject. We urge you to seriously consider joining us as we begin this faith journey.

To join this conversation please email lynda@santateresachurch.com. All are welcome!
