National Black Catholic History Month Events

November is National Black Catholic History Month. Ordinarily, we would have had a celebration commemorating National Black Catholic History Month here in the Diocese of Brooklyn, but because of the current restrictions we are unable to do so this year.

Instead, we invite you to join the upcoming online events hosted by the US Catholic Bishops. The series will focus on the soon to be Black Saints of our Church. It is entitled, “Celebrating the Cloud of Witnesses: Race, Resilience and Renewal”. It will take place over 3 Saturday afternoons, November 7, 14, and 21. The last Saturday will conclude with Mass celebrated by Archbishop Wilton Gregory of Washington DC (who was appointed to be cardinal by Pope Francis last weekend).
