Have you wondered what the Catholic Church has to do with the Black Lives Matter movement? Are you interested in hearing about the connections between anti-racism and Jesuit spirituality? Come, bring your lunch and join an informal conversation today from 11:45 a.m. to 1 p.m. in Old Main 204. All faculty, staff, students, family members and friends are welcome.
We’ll be joined by Dr. Alex Mikulich, a Roman Catholic theologian and social ethicist who devotes his scholarship and activism to racial equity in the Roman Catholic Church and society. Mikulich is a spiritual director in the tradition of Saint Ignatius of Loyola and currently serves as assistant director of Mission and Ministry at Loyola University New Orleans.
His recent “Breathing Space” essay, published in America magazine, argued that “Jesuit institutions must do more to undo racism.” The essay won the 2016 best essay in a national weekly from the Catholic Press Association.
