Black Catholic History

Join us for an in-depth educational experience as we strive to inspire the Christian faithful through the witness of Catholic candidates for sainthood.

We promise to have a focused dialogue in the areas of Racism, Sexism, Ageism, Poverty, Authentic Worship, and more. We will celebrate how they triumphed over tragedies and learn how we can do the same. The Event is scheduled for three consecutive Saturdays [November 7, November 14 and November 21]. Two of the candidates will be highlighted at each event.

All participants must register at:

In Preparation to Celebrate Black Catholic History, please join us in Praying A Novena: A Journey Toward Holiness, from October 24 – November 1, 2020.
