Celebrating Our Heritage!
Happy Black History Month!

We pray that you will do something in this month to honor the legacy of our ancestors and to build the future of our community. Several parishes have great things planned to incorporate Black History into the liturgy. We hope that all parishes will do something to build up the knowledge and strength of your parishioners.

We also hope that you will all plan to join us for the Sankofa Day of Reflection on February 17th. The last day to register is next Friday, February 9th. We will be working with finalized Pastoral Plan of Action from the National Black Congress. The link is here. We encourage all those who attended the National Black Catholic Congress and 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
