ETHICS & DIVERSITY IN THE PURSUIT OF BELONGING VIRTUAL CONFERENCE MARCH 22-25
Providence staff are invited to attend the Covenant Health Ethics & Discernment Centre’s first virtual conference on Ethics and Diversity in the Pursuit of Belonging happening March 22-25.
We are living in a time where racism, the erosion of trust in societal institutions, polarizing politics and issues of ‘othering’ are rapidly escalating. These threats leave us and our communities diminished – and they are counter to the call to foster belonging and the vocation of the Common Good.
How ought we respond in these times? What can we do to foster belonging and connection? How shall we live in order to usher in peace, reconciliation and justice together?
Please join us as we examine these challenges through the lens of Catholic Social Teaching and the call to foster belonging in and through Catholic institutions.
