Bishop Peter Rosazza Social Justice Conference
About the Conference
The Annual Social Justice Conference was first conceived in 2010, to recognize then-Auxiliary Bishop Peter A. Rosazza on the occasion of his 75th birthday. A tireless advocate and active worker for social justice, Bishop Rosazza acted as the Archbishop's Representative to the Board of Directors of the Office of Urban Affairs, and later the Office for Catholic Social Justice Ministry. To recognize his many years of support and service to the Office, the conference was named in his honor.
The only event of its kind in the region, the Conference attracts parish leaders, educator, volunteers and youth from across the Archdiocese and beyond for a day of education, prayer and conversation. The Conference offers those engaged in social justice ministry, both newcomers and veterans, an opportunity to learn more about current issues from experienced practitioners and to share ideas and best practices with colleagues from different settings. A Keynote address and networking opportunities round out the day.

The 2020 Conference is based on the Pastoral Letter Against Racism
But racism still profoundly affects our culture, and it has no place in the Christian heart. This evil causes great harm to its victims, and it corrupts the souls of those who harbor racist or prejudicial thoughts. The persistence of the evil of racism is why we are writing this letter now."
