Racism & Reconciliation


The members of the Racism and Reconciliation committee recognize the presence of racism so deeply entrenched in our society and the harm and pain it inflicts on individuals, organizations and communities. The group seeks to increase our own awareness and deepen our understanding of the structure and impact of oppression, so that we can work most effectively for healing, reconciliation and justice in the St. Louis region.

Next R&R meeting: Wednesday, April 19th from 4:30-5:30pm in the parish center.  Contact Lisa Burks if you’d like to join at lmburks60@gmail.com.
