 The theme for this year’s Catholic Heritage Lectures is “That All May Be One: Racial Justice and the Catholic Church” and will kick off with a public lecture and discussion featuring the Most Rev. Edward K. Braxton of Belleville, IL, one of eight African-American Bishops in the United States Catholic Conference of Bishops. Bishop Braxton will speak on “The Catholic Church and the Racial Divide in the United States” on Tuesday, October 17, 2017 at 7:00pm in Pigott Auditorium.

Bishop Braxton holds a Ph.D. in Religious Studies and a S.T.D. in Systematic Theology from the Catholic University of Louvain in Belgium. To prepare for Bishop Braxton’s visit, we invite you to read two of his pastoral letters on the racial divide in the United States: “The Catholic Church and the Racial Divide in the United States: A Reflection on the World Day of Peace 2015” and “The Catholic Church and the Black Lives Matter Movement: The Racial Divide Revisited (2016).” Links to the letters are available on the ICTC website: seattleu.edu/ictc
