Wednesday, February 17, 2021, 1:00 – 2:00 p.m.  Join Campus Ministry as we reflect on the Racial Equity Challenge through the lens of the final stage of the Examen: Resolving, with the help of God’s grace, to improve ourselves and our world. Having spent the 21 days learning, praying, and acting for racial equity, where do we as a community go from here, and what help do we need to get there?
