In the Spring of 2021, Saint Ignatius San Francisco offered a 20-week program that paired education on race through a historical, sociological and theological lens with the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius. Join creator Teresa Marie Cariño for a presentation about the program and how you can adapt it to your parish, time for Q&A, and small group conversations.

Monthly Vigil for Racial Justice

The ecumenical witness to racial inequities switches to first Fridays as a powerful message to rush-hour commuters that our two communities--Compton Heights Christian Church and St. Margaret of Scotland--are standing up for the Gospel call to love our neighbor as ourselves. The vigil is outdoors and socially distanced. Battery-operated candles provided.

Vigil for BLM and racial justice

Join the St. Cronan faith community for a monthly vigil for Black lives every third Friday.


Friday, August 6  |  1pm  First Friday Prayer Vigil - VIRTUAL

On the First Friday of each month, Catholic Mobilizing Network holds a Virtual Prayer Vigil to lament upcoming executions and bear witness to the inviolable dignity of all human life. These virtual spaces offer a place to pray together as a faith community in response to the injustice of the death penalty.
