The Confronting Whiteness & Racism Working Group is hosting a prayerful discussion of the Basilica of St. Mary’s and the University of St. Thomas’s Becoming Human series this summer and fall.  

Becoming Human is a partnership between The Basilica of Saint MaryChasing Kingdom Media, and the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, Minnesota. It is funded in part by the SOLV Initiative of the College of Arts and Sciences, an interdisciplinary mix of big thinkers, students and community members working together to address real-world problems wherever they exist, and by Academic Affairs at the University of St. Thomas.
