On Sept. 29, the Minnesota Catholic Conference hosted a public Zoom titled, “Read Open Wide Our Hearts: The enduring call to Love and more resources on racism,” which can be found at Attendees heard from Archbishop Bernard Hebda of the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis and Bishop John Quinn of the Diocese of Winona-Rochester, along with the featured speaker and panelists.

The event was described as an opportunity for formation and reflection on the critical issues of racial inequality and injustice in America. How can the Church uphold the dignity of all human persons and foster the common good during these contentious times? What issues do we need to address with our own Church that prevent an appropriate response?

This forum was primarily for priests, deacons, educators, and lay ecclesial ministers and was also open to the public.

This panel discussion aligns with discussion on race, faith, and higher education that Saint Mary’s will host in November and into the new year. Additionally, one of the panelists was Lannette Turicchi, who will serve as the moderator for our Nov. 11 event, Race, Faith, and Higher Education.
