This past week, I was blessed to travel to Cape May, New Jersey, to celebrate Mass and help lead a town hall on addressing the mortal sin of racism with the principals of our parish and regional elementary schools in the five-county Archdiocese. I was joined by other members of the Archbishop’s Commission on Racial Healing:  Jerry Davis, Alana Lee, and Marcelle McGuirk. This was one of the first times our current school leaders discussed this topic as a large group and they embraced the call of encounter, formation, and action.
