Social Justice Seminar

Justice, Service, Love, Community

Suffering, poverty and violence encounter love, community and devotion

Join chaplains-in-residence Jon Rice and Josh Evans for a weekly discussion of themes related to social justice.

We'll start by reading Raising Gentle Men: Lives at the Orphanage Edge by Jay Sullivan. Jay will visit Georgetown on September 23 to speak about the book and his experience.

Raising Gentle Men is the author's memoir of two years of service in Kingston, Jamaica teaching at a Jesuit high school and living at an orphanage for abandoned boys.

An incredibly engaging story, each chapter provokes deep reflection on central issues related to social justice. Readers quickly see the complexity of Jay's own experience and the experiences of the boys and devoted women who run the orphanage.

Email chaplain Josh Evans if you're interested!

Chapters 1 & 2 are free at the book's website:
