Continue On the Road to Damascus Rescheduled to April 22

Please join the St. Mary Parish Social Concerns Racial Justice team in a morning of learning and reflection as we seek to embrace racial justice work through the perspective of love.  Our event, Continue on the Road to Damascus: To Change the World, We Need a New Way to See, To Live, To Love,  has been rescheduled to occur on Saturday morning, April 22, from 9:00 am - 12:30 pm.  Please re-register even if you had originally registered for the March 25 date that was canceled due to weather.

Together we will look at the life of Sr. Thea Bowman, FSPA, a Black Catholic religious sister, teacher, musician and hope-filled woman who sang noble songs and wrote challenging poetry to an audience within the Church that needed to see the Black community as whole and holy, as welcomed and valued.  Her cause for canonization has been built upon her prophetic and sweet spirit which melted the hearts of even the most skeptical among the clergy in the Church.  Come and hear her speak to the USCCB (United States Conference of Catholic Bishops) and be present to her legacy as Georgetown University renames its chapel after this most compelling woman of God.

There will be prayer, a presentation/discussion of Thea Bowman’s impact, and plenty of time to spend in your small group to discuss what you see and what you hear.  Come, grow a new world, one where we can see more clearly through the eyes of love.
