STATEMENT FROM OUR PRESIDENT, JUNE 3, 2020:
Black Lives Matter.
The Gospel teaches us to love our neighbor as we love God. We work in education because it is the surest path to express that love. We stand in solidarity with all who cry out and work for a better world. Our faith calls us to reconciliation and that faith urges us on.
Our communities are impacted by disease, economic uncertainty, and police violence. We stand with our communities, ready to learn, to teach, to pray, and to act.
Our utter horror at the violence imposed on African-American and immigrant persons and communities will not lead us to despair, apathy, or isolation nor will we tolerate oppression in the name of peace. Our shock at murders in our cities’ streets and our disgust for the systems that have ingrained racism in American society cannot, and will not, paralyze us or allow us to remain silent. We exist to heal the brokenness that racism has caused in ourselves, in our communities, and in our country.
We pray for leadership that unites, for community that nurtures, and for faith that heals. We are saddened that the pandemic introduces physical distance at a time when we need each other the most. Therefore it is critical for our collective community to join together as we reinforce our efforts to secure a better future for our children.
I close with the words of St. Paul to the Philippians: “Have no anxiety at all, but in everything, by prayer and petition, make your requests known to God. Then the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus."
