The Catholic Committee of Appalachia, which is focused on justice issues in the area, is celebrating its 50th Annual Gathering, which is open to all faith traditions, only online on Sept. 11-13. The weekend includes a virtual keynote, online concert and virtual liturgical prayer and discussion.
Following that is the "Voices that Challenge" online workshop series throughout the rest of September. This includes such diverse topics as COVID-19, racism in Appalachia, addiction, LGBTQ+ people in the church, art and the environment, and the history of the Appalachian pastorals, and more.
Registration is $50 for everything, including links to recordings of all events until the end of the year. Click here to register.
