Dear Saint Mary’s Faculty and Staff,

Join us during our inaugural Inclusion and Human Dignity week to reflect on and celebrate our inherent dignity and worth as children of God, created in His image and likeness, and to love our neighbor in all that we do. Our theme this year: exploring injustices. 

Each day will have different opportunities to celebrate and discuss our inclusive community alongside the concept of human dignity. Please reference the timeline of events below:
