More information on the gathering

In today’s political climate, Christianity and Anarchism aren’t the most obvious bedfellows. However, both traditions look intentionally to non-governmental sources of authority, and in both traditions there is awareness of the political and ethical stakes of this decision. By exploring the intersection of these two rivers of consciousness, we can learn about the how to make our movements more grounded and our churches more relevant.

The Radical Catholics for Justice and Peace and the Bread and Roses Catholic Worker House invite “Anarchists,” “Christians,” and everyone in between to engage this discussion.
