In the wake of the tragedy in Charlottesville and the face of growing violent acts the Ku Klux Klan, Neo-Nazis, and White Supremacist groups, the Sisters of Saint Agnes publicly condemn racism and to recommit to pray for our country.
The Sisters of St Agnes join with women religious throughout the nation in condemning racism in all its harmful forms whether the violent acts of the Ku Klux Klan, Neo-Nazis, and White Supremacist groups or the daily acts of hate and discrimination that diminish us all.
We grieve with the citizens of Charlottesville and all people of goodwill. We mourn with all who have lost loved ones, with all who live in fear, with all whose dignity is threatened by hate and violence. We lament the racism that continues to afflict our communities.
We pray for our country and look forward to the day when all truly live in equality and unity.
