Beloved Community Book Group

Beloved Community: Commission for Dismantling Racism is the name for what was called for two decades the Diocesan Anti-Racism Commission, and reports to Dr. Catherine Meeks of Riverdale, the commission’s chair.

St. Julian’s supports the Beloved Community’s mission in many ways. One is by participating in regular book studies, and watching documentaries on current social justice topics. The group also takes pilgrimages throughout the year.

The group meets Monday nights at 6:30 pm in the Morton Prayer Room. The community is currently reading Patrick Phillips’ book, Blood at the Root.

For more information, please contact Sheryl Bowen.
