Sisters of St. Joseph of Boston React to Charlottesville Tragedy

August 16, 2017

Brighton, MA: As persons of faith who embrace the Gospel values of respect for the dignity of all persons and non-violent, peaceful resolution of differences, the Sisters of St. Joseph of Boston and our Associates abhor the recent tragic events in Charlottesville, perpetrated by white supremacists.

The alarming growth and increased activities of various hate groups throughout our country are contrary to both our religious and civic values. We renew our commitment to our charism of unity and reconciliation, and we stand in solidarity with all those who condemn acts of hatred and violence fueled by racism or any form of intolerance.
