Serving Christ and Connecting Catholics in Western North Carolina

BELMONT — All are invited to a workshop on combatting racism, “Just Listening: A Workshop on Listening as an Act of Justice,” hosted by the Sisters of Mercy from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., Saturday, Feb. 17, in Curtin Hall in the Mercy Administration Center, 101 Mercy Dr., Belmont. The Sisters of Mercy are offering this workshop because of their commitment to non-violence.

It will be presented by Sharon Browning, a trained mediator and attorney. As Pope Francis said in his New Years’ talk on non-violence: “An ethics of fraternity and peaceful coexistence between individuals and among peoples cannot be based on the logic of fear, violence and closed-mindedness, but on responsibility, respect and sincere dialogue.”
