The Commission on Dismantling Racism in the Diocese of Missouri invites you to a two-day training that will challenge, enlighten, stretch, support and broaden your understanding of racism.

The training uses reading, prayer, facilitated role play, reflection and multi-media to initiate a continuing discussion on what the Bishops of the Episcopal Church have named as a “spiritual malady which infects us all.”

The commission’s vision is to explore “the current dynamics of racism, confess our complicity with that evil, declare a covenant with each other to work to eliminate racism wherever we find it in church and society, and invite all Episcopalians to join us in a mission of justice, reconciliation and unity.” -from The Sin of Racism: A Pastoral Letter from the House of Bishops of the Episcopal Church, March 1994

The training is free and open to all members of the diocese. The training is required for all clergy and senior wardens, and recommended for all lay leaders.
