Fr. Leahy’s, lecture will focus on racism, diversity and inclusion from his perspective as a white monk serving his black and brown neighbors in and around Newark for nearly 48 years. Giving young men and (now) women a voice, allowing them to lead, and instilling a deep sense of community has produced generations of Benedict’s Men of all races and creeds. Now St. Benedict’s has expanded its circle of diversity to include young women in its first-ever Girls Division. Join Fr. Ed as he shares how The Rule of St. Benedict guides the school’s success.

Fr. Leahy is the headmaster of St. Benedict’s Preparatory School in Newark, New Jersey. St. Benedict’s prepares boys and girls in and around Newark to fulfill their potential as emotionally mature, morally responsible and well-educated citizens. Operated by the Benedictine Monks of Newark Abbey since 1868, St. Benedict’s offers a rigorous curriculum that sharpens the mind, shapes character and nourishes the spirit.

This event is free and open to the public.
