Upcoming Webinars

Every Family Is Unique: Some Have Greater Needs

Thursday, July 9, 2020 at 2:00 PM ET

Presented by: Charleen Katra, Executive Director of the National Catholic Partnership on Disability (NCPD) & Esther Garcia, Director of Outreach and Diocesan Relations at NCPD
Moderated by: Evan Psencik

Every family, like every parish, is not created equal. Families who have children with disabilities commonly experience isolation, even in faith communities, even before 2020. The dictums of today make accompaniment more challenging, but still possible. This webinar will assist leaders in learning how to be a bridge for families with greater needs so that our parishes become a more inclusive community, encouraging and welcoming all as active members of the Church.

This is an All-Access Webinar – Available for Free to All Interested!

How to Talk About Racism – Part 2: The Questions

Thursday, July 16, 2020 at 2:00 PM ET

Panelists: Pamela Harris (Diocese of Columbus), Deacon Art Miller (Archdiocese of Hartford), Greg “Dobie” Moser (Diocese of Cleveland)
Moderated by: Darius Villalobos (NFCYM)

Racism is a difficult issue to talk about openly and honestly, yet that is exactly what ministry leaders must do to help transform attitudes and hearts. During our last webinar on How to Talk About Racism, you had a lot of questions:

  • How can mostly white communities talk about racism?
  • Isn’t there racism in all races?
  • If people of color don’t apply for leadership, how do we make our community more inclusive?
  • What are some steps we can take to focus on positive racial interaction?
  • How do we avoid “tokenism”?
  • How can we avoid rash judgments of police incidents?
  • Is being “colorblind” considered racist?
  • What is some language that leadership can use to equip us to talk about racism appropriately?
  • How do we pivot from speaking about racism to action?
Join us for Part 2 as our diverse panel attempts to respond to these and other questions as we continue our journey toward reconciliation and justice.
