LA Church's Jubilee Year a Chance to Face Sins of California Mission History
In this article by featured NCR columunist David DeCosse, director of religious and Catholic ethics at the Markkula Center for Applied Ethics, DeCosse discusses the Jubilee Year declared to celebrate the 250th anniversary of the San Gabriel Mission and the legacy of its missionary activity.
"To be Catholic in California today is to hunger for the church to take the lead in openly facing its problematic mission past. The jubilee year in the Los Angeles Archdiocese — set to go until September 2022 — does not appear thus far to be a vehicle for such an accounting."
