National Black Sisters’ Conference makes statement

Sister Callista Robinson, president of the National Black Sisters’ Conference, shared this statement:

“We, as black women religious and associates, stand in solidarity with those who seek peace and justice in the tragic shooting and death of Michael Brown by a Ferguson, Mo., police officer. This incident is the latest of several recent tragic events between blacks and white police officers in our country.

“We hold in prayer the Brown family, the police officer and is family and the Ferguson community.

“Together we form a strong and cohesive voice in support of the dignity of all persons and in confronting the sin of racism. We realize that we have issues of violence to address within our communities and take that responsibility seriously. In keeping with our mission, we will continue to work for the development of just social systems and institutions.”

The statement was signed by Sister Callista, vice president Sister Barbara Croom ASC, secretary Sister Patricia Dual OP, treasurer Sister Patricia Lucas DHM and board members Sisters Patricia Chappell SND de N, Jamie Phelps OP, Jannette Pruitt OSF and Patricia Rogers OP.

The Franciscan Sisters of Little Falls, Minnesota, is a community of Catholic women religious who follow the Gospel of Jesus Christ, walking in the footsteps of Saints Francis and Clare of Assisi. We believe that the living of a poor, simple and prayerful community life is a ministry of presence and witness. Our doors are open to the public to celebrate Mass in Sacred Heart Chapel and to benefit from the St. Francis Music Center and St. Francis Health & Recreation Center. We welcome those who wish to join us as sisters, associates, volunteers, transfer sisters, friends and donors.
