People in Louisville, Ky., participate in the "Walking Together: Pilgrimage for Racial Justice" Oct. 16, 2021. The event included a pilgrimage from the Cathedral of the Assumption to Presentation Academy, where the 150 or so participants listened to a panel of members of the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth, Ky., discuss the congregation's "own pilgrimage" -- from its early years as a slaveholder to its efforts today for racial justice.
