Commitment to Excellence
“As Christians, we are called to listen and know the stories of our brothers and sisters. We must create opportunities to hear, with open hearts, tragic stories that are deeply imprinted on the lives of our brothers and sisters, if we are to be moved with empathy to promote justice.” Open Wide Our Hearts: The Enduring Call to Love-Pastoral Letter Against Racism.
