Statements from our School Founders on Racism and Injustice

In these recent days deep listening, discernment, and educating ourselves about the injustices towards the black community have been paramount. As we prayerfully take action towards creating meaningful change we keep at the forefront of our mind the charisms given to us by our founders, The Sisters of Charity of the Blessed Virgin Mary and the Order of the Carmelites. Please take a moment to review their statements.
