The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Washington’s work to end racism

This content is provided by the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Washington.

During Black History Month this February, the Catholic Archdiocese of Washington continues its initiative ‘Made in God’s Image: Pray and Work to End the Sin of Racism’ in the effort to fight for racial justice and the defense of the dignity of all people. This initiative includes a wide range of pastoral activities focused on prayer, work, and action. Outreach includes listening sessions, faith formation opportunities, and social justice work.

Please join Washington Cardinal Wilton Gregory, auxiliary bishops, clergy, and staff as we continue to pray and work together to proclaim Christ’s love for all people and work for justice for all.
