2021 Summer Institute: Racism as Soul Sickness

June 11th, 2021

OMI JPIC is proud to co-sponsor this event with the Oblate School of Theology

Registration: $75 | REGISTER TODAY @ THIS LINK

Racism, for all its overt manifestation in our daily lives, is never a conscious thing. No one identifies himself or herself as a racist. But racism is unconsciously embedded in the DNA of most every culture and the soul of most every one of us. We aren’t always conscious of what’s ill inside of either our bodies or our souls. This series of lectures and discussions will examine the issue of racism by drawing upon the experience of Black, Hispanic, and Asian Americans.

Featured Speakers:

  • Rev. Dr. Bryan Massingale, a priest of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee and is currently James and Nancy Buckman Professor of Theological and Social Ethics at Fordham University and the Senior Fellow in its Center for Ethics Education.  A leader in Catholic theology, he is President-Elect of the Society of Christian Ethics.  He is also a former president of the Catholic Theological Society of America and a former Convener of the Black Catholic Theological Symposium.
  • Dr. Teresa Maya, CCVI, a member of the Congregation of the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word, San Antonio since 1994. Her ministry has been in education. She has served as teacher, history professor, and administrator. She has passion for the formation of ministers for Hispanics/Latinos in the United States. 
  • Dr. KimOanh Nguyen-Lam, life-long learner and educator who had served as a teacher, mentor, advisor, leader and now bringing all of those experiences together as an executive coach. Her passion has always been engaging with people to promote mutual learning and growth to advance social and educational equity and justice.
