Celebrating Black History Month - You are invited to Local Masses

As we continue to celebrate Black History Month, we want to share an invitation, two helpful recordings and a link to the Black Catholic Congress website. 

As part of our Black History Month celebration, you are invited to Masses on Feb. 27 and 28 at St. Joseph Church in Saginaw.  Please save the dates as more details will be shared soon. Father Anthony Kote-Witah, OFM Cap (photo below) will celebrate these Masses. Father Anthony ministers at the Solanus Casey Center in Detroit.
