A Statement from President John Naatz
Posted 06/05/2020 12:35PM

Dear Creighton Prep Community,

We at Prep share in the world's heartbreak over the deaths of George Floyd, James Scurlock and others, and we stand with all those who vigorously oppose violence against African Americans resulting from systemic injustice and racism. These events are a stark reminder of how far we still must go as a society to build bridges of understanding between people. Bridges that lead to long-lasting peace and justice for all of God's children.

Pope Francis stated, "We cannot tolerate or turn a blind eye to racism and exclusion in any form. At the same time, we have to recognize that violence is self-destructive and self-defeating. Nothing is gained by violence and so much is lost. Let us pray for reconciliation and peace."

We also wholeheartedly support the calls for action against racism by other faith leaders including the Provincial of the USA Midwest Province of Jesuits Fr. Brian Paulson, SJ. And we look forward to engaging our faculty, staff, and students on the issue through prayer, discussion, and programming. This is an immediate priority and action item for us.

In addition, the statement sent to our students by Head of School Jim Bopp and his staff recognizes the responsibility we have to live as contemplatives in action through our prayerful and reflective partnership with God's transformative work, according to the Gospel values ingrained in the Creighton Prep Profile of the Graduate at Graduation. This profile helps guide our mission to form men of faith, scholarship, leadership, and service in the Catholic and Jesuit tradition.

As we move forward, we pray for all those who continue to suffer greatly in the midst of an unjust world and for the wisdom needed by us all to solve this great divide. 

God's blessings,

John Naatz

President
