Black Catholic History Month

On July 24, 1990 the National Back Catholic Clergy Caucus of the United States designated November as Black Catholic History Month. November marks a time when we pray for all saints and souls in loving remembrance, including St. Martin de Porres (Nov 3), and St. Augustine (Nov 13) and time to recall the saints.
