Vincentian Family Gathering 2021
October 22, 2021 - October 25, 2021
As members of the North American Vincentian Family, we commit to strengthen our collective impact in the face of inequity and injustice, seeking opportunities for service and systemic change.
Now, rooted in the Gospel, we recognize a call to face the sin of racism. At the 2021 Gathering, we will:
- Deepen our relationships with one another by engaging in meaningful and respectful dialogue concerning our individual and collective experiences of race, diversity and inclusion in the Vincentian Family and beyond.
- Explore how racism denies human dignity in our relationships and social structures, affirm that the lives of men and women of color matter, and examine how white privilege and white supremacy are imbedded and manifested.
- Learn skills to foster our ability to give voice to our experiences so that we may heal the wounds of racism and create effective change.
