As part of its response to “Open Wide Our Hearts,” the U.S. bishops’ pastoral letter on racism, the archdiocesan Office for Black Catholics will offer a seminar on two women of color who founded religious orders.
The workshop will take place on Feb. 12 at the St. John Neumann Center, located at 1032 Lawrence Street in Philadelphia. The program will highlight the work of Mother Mary Lange and Mother Theresa Maxis.
The day is open to all female high school students, particularly those currently in leadership roles among their schools’ sophomore, junior and senior classes. The event is being co-sponsored by the Sisters, Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the Oblate Sisters of Providence.
The deadline for registration is Monday, Jan. 28. Lunch will be provided for all students and chaperones.
For information, contact Father Richard N. Owens, O.F.M.Cap., director of the Office for Black Catholics, at 215-587-3541 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
