    Centennial United Methodist Church of Roseville and St Paul (successor to St Anthony Park UMC) regrets that the events depicted in this photo are a part of our history and acknowledge the ongoing harm that they cause.

    This statement is vague without a commitment to doing better or to reparative actions to address the ongoing harm. As member of this church community, I believe we need to do more.
