Racial Justice Sunday

Mauricio Silva, Columban Interreligious Dialogue Co-ordinator explains a little more about Racial Justice Sunday 2021 and encourages us to participate in an upcoming webinar hosted by Churches Together in Britain and Ireland which aims to inform people a little more about racial justice and what it looks like in Church and society.

2020 was a difficult year. Besides the tragic killing of George Floyd, there was been the emergence of the Covid pandemic that continues to wreak havoc in societies around world. These events have demonstrated the need for greater racial justice in Britain and Ireland which is why we are fully supporting Racial Justice Sunday 2021 which will be celebrated on 14th February.

On Sunday 14th February, Churches Together in Britain and Ireland has developed an ecumenical initiative and is inviting everyone to Remember, Reflect and Respond to racial justice matters:

  • Remember the importance of racial justice.
  • Reflect on human diversity and thank God for it.
  • Respond by working to end injustice, racism and ignorance through prayer and action.

This year, Churches Together in Britain and Ireland is hosting a webinar on Wednesday 10th February 2021, 7:30-8:30pm during which some of the keenest minds in our churches will explore what racial justice looks like in Church and society. To find out more and to register your interest please visit the Churches Together in Britain and Ireland’s website.

The Columbans are passionate about equality, justice and peace.  Following many years of community engagement, we are actively involved in grassroots initiatives that bring together people from different faith traditions, cultures and religions. We continue to focus on building relationships and supporting interfaith initiatives particularly among migrants and disadvantaged communities across Birmingham.
