As the 2020 presidential election approaches, this panel presentation explores a Catholic perspective on American politics. How can people of faith draw upon the Christian tradition to address the polarization that is taking place in America? What role do moral issues play when deciding on a candidate? How can we move towards greater unity and collaboration in a time of division? Moderated by Dr. Cathleen Kaveny, a panel of editors from America Media address these questions and more.

El 24 de mayo de 2015, el Papa Francisco nos sorprendía con una Encíclica dedicada al medio

ambiente, el cambio climático y el sufrimiento de los más pobres. Recordó que “el llanto de la

tierra es el llanto de los más pobres”. Hoy, a cinco años de Laudato Sí, queremos dialogar sobre

esta situación en nuestros contextos y los retos que representa para cada uno/a de nosotros/as.

Do Black Lives Matter to God?

Do Black Lives Matter to God?                                                              

Thursday, October 15, 6:00-7:00 p.m. EST

Presenter:  Amey Victoria Adkins-Jones, Asst. Professor of Theology and African and African Diaspora Studies, Boston College Theology Department

Free of charge, Register Here

We find ourselves in a time of two pandemics: the sudden Covid-19 virus that has shifted ways of life and being across the globe, and the persistently painful legacy of anti-black violence in the United States. As the responses to the viral pandemic have only highlighted and exacerbated the racial and socioeconomic divides in this country, and as the contemporary civil rights movement pushes for reform and abolition, declaring yet again that Black lives matter -- where is God? Where is the (c)hurch? Together we reflect on both the questions and theological resources for pursuing community and racial justice.

PYNE LECTURE ON MINISTRY WITH PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES

At least 20% of young people are neurodivergent, diagnosed with a neurodevelopmental disability such as autism or developmental dyslexia. While religion and spirituality are infused in cultures the world over, spiritual and religious development in this diverse population have been without substantive attention in research and practice. This talk brings together theology, social work, education, psychology, and neuroscience to extend our understanding of and attention to the spiritual and religious experiences of these young people and their families.
Sponsored by STM, Boston College School of Social Work, and generously supported by the Pyne Endowment Trust in Memory of Professor Margaret E. Pyne, a lifelong advocate for persons with disabilities

Son muchos los nuevos signos de los tiempos actuales. Entre ellos, está la situación de la migración en los Estados Unidos, la vida en la frontera, el miedo frente al cambio de las leyes y la ejecución de las mismas, la separación de familias. Son todas ellas realidades que caracterizan a nuestra generación e historia como Iglesia en los Estados Unidos. En esta conversación, abordamos estos temas a partir de un discernimiento cristiano de la situación actual.
