A Lenten Retreat: Break Every Chain, a Road to Racial Healing

January 25, 2023

Consider it all joy, my sisters and brothers, when you encounter various trials for you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.” James 1:2-3


The Archdiocese of Philadelphia’s Office of Black Catholics is partnering with the Sisters of the Redeemer to host an full-day spiritually-empowering and immersive experience.

This Lenten retreat will allow participants to be transformed as active anti-racists committed to racial justice especially eradicating racism in all its forms within the Church, U.S. society, and most importantly, within ourselves.
