“Brothers and Sisters to Us” Pastoral Letter on racism by the USCCB
Given the multi-cultural makeup of the diocese, the RJC recognizes that the issue of racial and ethnic discrimination is a serious problem that affects many groups in the Diocese including those of African, Hispanic, and Asian descent, as well as recent immigrants.
“Brothers and Sisters to Us” is a pastoral letter which was written by the U.S. bishops. It is a foundational document of the Church that explains Catholic social teaching on racial justice. This pastoral letter can be found at http://www.uscatholic.org/church/2008/07/brothers-and-sisters-us
The RJC sponsors workshops on racial and ethnic sensitivity and engages in initiatives and projects that foster and promote cultural diversity and harmony.
The Commission would like to expand this initiative. (Catholic Star Herald Pen Pals article)
