Parish Racial Justice

The Ignatian Solidarity Network will offer another of its racial justice programs on Wednesday, October 27.
The session will be led by Tom Ulrich, author of Parish Social Ministry and “On Earth As It Is In Heaven.” 
The invitation notes:
Addressing skepticism and resistance surrounding the idea of “social change” is an essential part of social justice ministry. This work requires a solid, thorough understanding of the Church’s teaching on social sin and reconciliation.

Join this session for a directed, interactive conversation attempting to break open Catholic Social Teaching on social sin. You’ll receive resources for your social justice ministry toolbox and fortify your confidence in talking about how social change for justice is a crucial part of God’s vision for a grace-filled world. 
The free event is from 2-3:30 p.m. If you are not available at that time, you can still register and receive access to a recording and resources on the topic. Past programs are available here.
The Ignatian Solidarity Network (ISN) works in partnership with more than 150 Jesuit universities, high schools, and parishes, along with many other Catholic institutions and social justice partners.
Through in-person and virtual programs and campaigns, ISN provides social justice education grounded in Catholic Social Teaching, and mobilizes more than 20,000 network members to take action on timely issues related to migration, care for creation, racial justice, and criminal justice.
