St. Eugene Human Concerns Social Justice Ministry Forum 

Forum starts after the 11am Mass

Father Jerry and the Human Concerns Committee are delighted to invite you to attend a two-part lecture series on how we, as Catholics called to follow Jesus's teachings, can respond to the racial divide in our city and our world.

On Sunday, Jan. 18 Dr. Gary Williams, director of Intercultural Research at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, will discuss the demographics of Milwaukee. He will talk about the quality of life for people of color and what initiatives are underway to try and narrow the gulf. 

His research includes: 

  • The major role families play in influencing outcomes for their children.
  • The state of children in Milwaukee.
  • The Black elders quality of life.
  • Health care in under served populations

On Sunday, April 19, Rich Harter, director of the John Paul II Center for the New Evangelization for the Archdiocese of Milwaukee, will give us a lesson on Catholic Social Teaching and show how we can put our faith into action to combat racism. 

Both talks will be held in Makin Hall after the 11 a.m. Mass. Lunch will be served!
