“Our Catholic, Social teaching of solidarity guides us to build a community that empowers all people to attain their full potential.”
Diversity and Inclusion
In Pope Francis’ Open Wide our Hearts: the enduring call to love, a pastoral letter against racism, he reminds us, “For a nation to be just, it must be a society that recognizes and respects the legitimate rights of individuals and peoples. These rights precede any society because they flow from the dignity granted to each person as created by God.”
Notre Dame is called to live this message. We are our brothers’ and sisters’ keepers wherever we live. Our Catholic, Social teaching of solidarity guides us to build a community that empowers all people to attain their full potential.
The First Black Shepherds of the Church include: Wilton Cardinal Gregory, Bishop James Augustine Healy, Reverend Augustus Tolton, and Most Reverend Joseph Francis, SVD Auxiliary Bishop of Newark.
