All students, faculty and staff are welcome to attend a discussion about racial justice and the Catholic Church. The group will meet on one Wednesday afternoon in late January to discuss the first two chapters and then again on a Wednesday afternoon in late February from 1:00 p.m. – 2:30 p.m. to discuss the rest of the book. This casual reading group will read the book Racial Justice and the Catholic Church by Fr. Bryan Massingale and will follow with a discussion about the book.

If you would like to attend, please RSVP to Nancy Rourke, associate professor of religious studies and theology, at Ext. 2460 or rourken@canisius.edu by Friday, January 18.

Any students who want to get a copy of the book free in order to participate in these discussions should contact Dr. Rourke by the last day of classes on Thursday, December 6. Your book will be available to pick up during exam week.

This discussion is co-sponsored by the Office of Mission and Identity, President Hurley’s office, Campus Ministry, Public Safety, East Side Immersion and the Catholic Studies Program.
