Racism - Pray, Learn, Act

“The equality of men rests essentially on their dignity as persons and the rights that flow from it: 'Every form of social or cultural discrimination in fundamental personal rights on the grounds of sex, race, color, social conditions, language, or religion must be curbed and eradicated as incompatible with God's design.'     Catechism of the Catholic Church, No. 1935, quoting Vatican II, Gaudium et Spes, No. 29.

Bishop Burbidge has formed an Advisory Council on Racism to develop a strategic plan for addressing racism in the diocese. Read about the Council and its mission.
