The American Catholic Church is richly unique in its legacy of and continual unfolding ethnic and racial diversity. The Institute for Catholic Thought and Culture’s 2019-20 Catholic Heritage Lectures highlight the contribution of three particular contributors: Hispanic/Latin American Catholics, African American Catholics, and Asian American Catholics. While enriching the Church through continual presence over the last many centuries, these groups face particular challenges unique to their often tension-filled interaction with institutional and local parish cultures. As we hear from each speaker this year, we are invited to consider how we might mutually shape, form, and cultivate the Church of the 21st Century.
But that voice often does not penetrate the wall of fear, misconception and prejudice that can separate people who are poor from those of us who have what we need. The voice of poverty can be drowned out or ignored in the halls of government, where other legitimate demands for resources also resound.
A Pastoral Letter from the Catholic Bishops of the State of Washington.
As Presidents of the Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities we feel spiritually and morally compelled to raise a collective voice confirming our values and commitments as Americans and educators. We represent colleges and universities from across our nation with more than 215,000 students and 21,000 faculty, and over 2 million living alumni.
Grounded in our Catholic and Jesuit mission, we are guided by our commitment to uphold the dignity of every person, to work for the common good of our nation, and to promote a living faith that works for justice. We see our work of teaching, scholarship and the formation of minds and spirits as a sacred trust.
