MERRILLVILLE — Catholics across the Diocese of Gary will join others across the United States next week for a day of prayer and fasting in support of peace and an end to racism.

The Most Rev. Robert J. McClory, Bishop of Gary, is encouraging local Catholics to examine their conscience, to repent and seek reparation of their soul, in light of the sin of racism. Catholics view prayer and fasting as acts of repentance and reparation.
