This workshop provides an overview of "The Pathway to Reconciliation" Study Guide which was designed for use with congregations .It is based on the Diocesan Final Report of the Legacy of Slavery Task Force. The Task Force was to examine the complicity of the Diocese of Chicago and its predecessor, the Diocese of Illinois, in: a. "the institution of slavery; b. the subsequent history of segregation and discrimination; and c. the current practices of segregation and discrimination". The study guide addresses these three issues. Congregations are finally asked to reimagine their congregation in light of antiracism and decide what next steps need to be taken.
