Jesuits and Boarding Schools: Truth, Reconciliation, Responsibility

Tuesday, December 7, 2021
12 – 1:30 p.m.

The Taking Responsibility project has a particular goal to highlight not only the history of Jesuit institutions and sexual abuse, but also to ask how we can confront and handle this history and its many legacies in the present. Following up on last year’s online dialogue, titled “Native American Communities and the Clerical Abuse Crisis,” this event will bring together a Jesuit who has been deeply involved in this question along with two speakers who are leaders at—and in one case a graduate of—the Red Cloud Indian School, now several years into a Truth and Healing process. The panel seeks to address the pressing question of what it means for today’s Jesuit institutions (and their employees, students, and graduates) to take responsibility for the full legacy of the Jesuits in North America.


This event is open to alumni, faculty/staff, parents, students, and the public.
