Holy Family's Statement Against The Sin Of Racism
Individual and systemic racism, in our past and currently, is a sin. It is antithetical to the founding principles of our nation’s Democracy, the vision of equality in which our God created us, and the Gospel values of Jesus Christ. Sin is reconciled by truly acknowledging it, being as sincere as possible in asking for, and trusting in, God’s forgiveness and genuinely committing to change through action.
WE here at Holy Family Catholic Community will carry out our commitment to reconciling racist sin by fully living out the seven principles of Catholic Social Teaching and will carry out that commitment through education, formation, discussion, and engagement.
We ask all who call Holy Family home for a full and genuine commitment to this reconciliation.
Holy Family is addressing the sin of racism as a community effort in the true sense of a pro-life movement. Our mission is focused on education, dialogue, reflection and engagement. Prayer is a key element in each segment and we pray you will join us on this important journey.
