Sr. Mary Priniski. OP & Matthew Cressler
This will be an opportunity to look at some difficult but timely topics. In these sessions we will examine both personal and institutional responses to those located on what Pope Francis calls “the peripheries”. We will address both the historic and current realities in the U.S., with particular focus on the South.
