White Supremacy and Catholicism

CTA’s White Supremacy Study Circles investigate the intersection of Catholicism and White Privilege and seek to dismantle white supremacy in our church. There are currently three main components of this work:

  • In person study circles. CTA is working with local leaders in Charlottesville to host a day-long retreat in 2018. This will be an opportunity for Catholics in the Charlottesville area to reflect on the racist rallies that recently invaded their city and organize a faithful response to white supremacy. If you live in or around the Charlottesville area and are interested in learning more about this retreat you can email cta@cta-usa.org for more information.
  • Online webinar. On November 28, 2017, CTA held an online webinar to give our members an opportunity to reflect on– and resist– the impact of white supremacy in our parishes and communities. Over forty CTA members from across the United States participated in this event.
  • Resources for Chapters. We are currently in the process of forming resources for CTA Chapters committed to dismantling racism and white supremacy.
