Open Wide Our Hearts - Moving Towards a World of Racial Justice

Join the Bishop Nelson Perez and Bishop George Murry, SJ for a listening session and a day of conversation addressing systemic racism within the Church and in the community.

The Diocese and Catholic Charities are co-sponsoring a conference centered on the recent USCCB pastoral letter entitled Open Wide Our Hearts: The Enduring Call to Love. The intent of the conference is to guide those in attendance in a discussion on how to respond to the increase in rhetoric about race in our community while also exploring our own convictions about cultural diversity in America and the Church.
