Conversations about racial injustice are nothing new at St. Katharine Drexel Parish, a black Catholic community whose members hail from the United States, the Caribbean, and various African countries.
Sister Tess Browne recently gave an interview to the Boston Pilot.
She says of the article, “In response to the BLM movement, LGBT, and abortion – I began by saying to the reporter that we are all made in God’s image, regardless of race and skin color, gender, identity or country of origin; we are all human beings, in God’s image. Systemic racism and Black Lives Matter are not ‘against Catholic values’, or against Catholic Social Teaching. Please do not believe the narratives that are trying to be divisive, or cause confusion or inaction in protecting persons with Black or Brown skin, and in working to dismantle systemic racism.”
