Workshop Description:
In this challenging time of political polarization, racially charged rhetoric, and shocking violence, the National Religious Vocation Conference (NRVC) invites you to gather in San Antonio, Texas, for an extended time of contemplative dialogue and discernment.  How do these signs of the times impact vocation ministry?  How are we, as leaders, called to an even deeper conversion, reconciliation, and transformation?  The Mexican American Catholic College (MACC) will provide a welcoming, safe space to engage in the often-difficult conversations about race and racism. Dr. Arturo Chávez, and Dr. John Chitakure will guide participants to examine beliefs and mindsets about race.  Engaging presentations will help build a common language and historical analysis of race as a social construction. Prayer, reflection, and rituals will guide our planning for communal action and systemic change.

Presenters:
Dr. Arturo Chávez is the President of the Mexican American Catholic College. He holds a Ph.D. in Religious and Theological Studies, from the University of Denver and the Iliff School of Theology, with a focus on the relationship between religion and social change.

Dr. John Chitakure serves as an Associate Professor of Pastoral Theology at the Mexican American Catholic College. He holds a D.Min. from the Catholic Theological Union, Chicago. He is the author of The Pursuit of the Sacred (2016), Shona Women in Zimbabwe—A Purchased People? (2016), and African Traditional Religion Encounters Christianity: The Resilience of a Demonized Religion (2017).
