Daniel A. Rudd by Rev. Cyprian Davis, OSB

Venerable Pierre Toussaint

Mother Henriette Delille

Mother Mary Lange

St. Josephine Bakhita

  These are but a few notable Black Catholics.
It's worth mentioning that many who have made extraordinary contributions
to the Church have lived ordinary lives without recognition.  Let's not forget to
give thanks for the unhearalded spiritual giants who have paved the way for us.
Please take some time to learn more about Black Catholic history.
And, be sure to pray for those who have gone before us and for those who will follow.
