This Far By Faith: Celebrating Black Catholic History
Join Campus Ministry, MSPS, and STAR-ND as we celebrate Black Catholic History with a series of events throughout the month of November.
“For nearly 450 years on the North American continent, Catholics of African descent nurtured and maintained their faith and took courage and inspiration from it to sustain resistance against the oppression of slavery and create life-giving spaces and opportunities. This was nearly 450 years of uncommon faithfulness.” ~ M. Shawn Copeland, PhD, Uncommon Faithfulness: The Black Catholic Experience
