A Blessed 2018!
Greetings from the Office of Black Catholic Ministries Staff! We pray that 2018 is off to a good start for you and your family. We have been very busy preparing for the MLK Day On Not Off, the Priests Hush Harbor, Sankofa Day of Reflection, and Habari Gani. We have also begun preparations for all the summer programs and conferences being held in the Archdiocese this year. 2018 looks to be a very busy time for us. So, we want to remind everyone that there are always opportunities to help. If you would like to serve in a hospitality role for the summer conferences please reply to this email or call the office to signup.

We have also received the finalized Pastoral Plan of Action from the National Black Congress. The link is here. We will be discussing this document and the results from last years Day of Reflection at the Sankofa Day of Reflection. We encourage all those who attended the National Black Catholic Congress to attend and we also encourage all our clergy to attend. The registration form is here. Please call the office with any questions.

Lastly, any parish that would like to get sets of the posters of those on the Road to Sainthood for Black History Month or prayer cards should contact the office. We have a few sets of the posters available and some prayer cards. Alecia can help you with any of your needs. If you would like to use the bulletin inserts as well for Black History Month you can find the links below.

Blessings in this new year,

Fr. Daniel & Alecia
