Exploring Catholic Culture

LITCHFIELD — The program, “Exploring Catholic Culture – Becoming One:  Catholic Social Teaching on Racism,” will take place at Wisdom House Retreat and Conference Center from  June 11 dinner (6 p.m.) to 3:30 p.m. June 12.

This program will explore the particular ways Catholics separate ourselves from others because of our misunderstanding about one’s race, a closed attitude about those with whom we are willing to share community, and a general suspicion about those who are different than we are.

Leading the program will be Sister Dawn M. Nothwehr, OSF, PhD, professor of christian ethics and chair of the historical and doctrinal studies department at the Catholic Theological Union in Chicago. She is co-editor and on the editorial board of the New Theology Review. She is the author of That They May be One: Catholic Social Teaching on Racism, Tribalism and Xenophobia, Orbis Books, 2008.
The program is co-sponsored by Wisdom House and the Center for Catholic Studies at Fairfield University.
