Open Wide Our Hearts: A Call and Response
"SAVE THE DATES"
In response to the second pastoral letter on racism Open Wide Our Hearts issued by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) on November 14, 2018, the Black Catholic Ministry Commission and the Urban Initiative Office, both of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee, invite you to two forums to discuss racism and this pastoral document in our community.
Open Wide Our Hearts - A Call and Response will be held: Saturdays, June 29, 2019 and August 24, 2019 at St. Martin de Porres Parish, 128 West Burleigh Street, Milwaukee at 8:00 to Noon. Registration is at 8:00 am, and the program begins at 8:30 am.
The events are opportunities to discuss "Does our church effectively address the issue of racism, and does it go far enough in taking on the issue of racism in the pastoral letter?"
Participants will also explore action steps to be taken in their own lives, parishes and community to address racism.
It is helpful that prior to the program participants read the document which is on the USCCB website.
Funding is provided by the Archdiocese of Milwaukee Offices for Urban Ministry, Intercultural Ministries, Social Justice and Dignity of the Human Person, Marriage, Family Life and Catholic Stewardship Appeal.
Please join us. All are welcome. Light refreshments will be served.
A flyer will be issued soon to post and share with your networks.
