Black Catholic Ministries

The Office of Black Catholic Ministry exists to empower the laity to evangelize and spread the Good News. The office works on behalf of the Archbishop to ensure the full participation of Black Catholics in the mission of the Church. This is accomplished by fostering opportunities for Black Catholic youth to receive cultural and spiritual enrichment; by enabling Black Catholics to assume leadership roles; by assisting parishes and pastoral leaders in their ministry to Black Catholics; by celebrating the rich history of contributions Black Catholics bring to the Catholic Church; and by promoting evangelization in the Black community and encouraging vocations to the priesthood and religious life.
