— May 13 “Stories of Racism and Racial Inequity,” will be shared by a panel of speakers.

— May 20 participants will view and discuss a film on racism and racial inequity.

— May 27 participants will hear a presentation on “The Sin of Racism,” the Catholic Church’s teaching on systemic racism.

— June 3 participants will discuss “The Challenge to Oppose Racism” and consider what actions they should take next.

Events will be held in person. The events on May 6 and 13 will also be live streamed to St. Patrick’s YouTube channel. COVID-19 safety guidelines will be followed, including social distancing and mask wearing.
