Bishop Announces First Step to Addressing Racism; Weldon named to be on Committee

July 11, 2020
BRIDGEPORT– As the first step in the diocesan response to root out the sin of racism and bigotry wherever it may be found, the diocesan Leadership Institute will sponsor a weekly webinar, starting on Thursday July 30th at 1:00 PM and again at 7:00 PM.

The webinar is designed to inform those who attend about the sin of racism and the Church’s teaching regarding it; the many forms that racism and bigotry can take; its history in our society; and the personal, economic and social consequences that racism has had on the lives of generations of people.

“Without proper knowledge, effective and thoughtful action is not possible. For this reason, I invite all to join in these “Conversations on Race” as we begin to respond in faith to this most important issue,” said Bishop Frank J. Caggiano.
