NATIONAL BLACK CATHOLIC CONGRESS
This year marks the 25th anniversary that the Black Catholic community has gathered at the National Black Catholic Congress to celebrate their heritage and faith. Black Catholics throughout the Archdiocese of Philadelphia will depart this week to the National Black Catholic Congress, in Indianapolis, Indiana. A bus will leave from Holy Redeemer Church in Chinatown:
Holy Redeemer Church
915 Vine Street
Philadelphia, PA 19107
The theme of this year's Congress is: Faith Engaged: Empower. Equip. Evangelize.
The Philadelphia group will join with over 3,200 other Catholics from across the United States to pray, listen, and learn about how to build and strengthen the Black Catholic community in their diocese.
