Open Wide Our Hearts
Pastoral Response to Racism
During a recent pastoral convocation, priests of the archdiocese heard from Bishop Sheldon Fabre, chair of the U.S. Bishops Ad Hoc Committee on Racism; from Archbishop Dennis Schnurr and others who shared experiences of racism in their lives.
The event carried forth the message of ‘Open Wide Our Hearts: An Enduring Call to Love’, the 2018 pastoral letter on racism from the U.S. bishops. The Archdiocese of Cincinnati is actively engaged in confronting the sin of racism, and there is still much work to do. You may read the pastoral letter and find other resources through the USCCB website on the link provided.
