The National Black Catholic Clergy Caucus (NBCCC)

Serves as a fraternity for Black Catholic Clergy and Religious to support the spiritual, theological, educational, and ministerial growth of its members. It is a vehicle to bring the contributions of the Black Community to fruition within the Catholic Church. It wages an attack on the institutional racism within the Catholic Church and on the Church's support of White racism overall in the American Society.

President: Fr. Kenneth Taylor

The National Black Sisters' Conference (NBSC)

The National Black Sisters' Conference was founded in 1968. We are a national organization representing Black Catholic religious in the United States. We the members of the National Black Sisters' Conference, pledge ourselves to work unceasingly for the liberation of black people. We black religious women see ourselves as gifted with the choicest of God's blessings. The gift of our womanhood, that channel through which the Son of God Himself chose to come into the human race, endows us with those qualities and prerogatives, which are designed for the deliverance of humanity.

President: Sr. Callista Robinson

The National Association of Black Catholic Administrators was founded in 1976, is dedicated to provide a forum for Black Catholic Administrators to gather and share their collective resources to effectively address the spiritual needs, issues, and concerns facing the African American communities we serve.

National Black Catholic Seminarians Association (NBCSA)

The National Black Catholic Seminarians Association (NBCSA) prides itself on the bonds of brotherhood, which our members share among themselves and with their confreres in their respective houses of formation. We seek to discern, identify and accentuate those spiritual, cultural, and ecclesial experiences in which we share. Our apostolic focus is on vocations and those who work with black vocations. We hope to enterprise in gathering and mobilizing our spiritual and cultural gifts for the good of the larger church. The NBCSA mission is not an exclusive, separatist or militant organization. But, one that is spiritually universal.

President: Douglas Hunter

African American Affairs - Secretariat of Cultural Diversity in the Church

NBCC Observer

Donna Grimes, Assistant Director
United States Conference of Catholic Bishops

Responsibilities: Staff the USCCB Subcommittee on African American Affairs, providing guidance to the chairman, members and consultants to promote the goals and objectives of the Subcommittee; which is mandated to assist the Committee on Cultural Diversity in the Church and other USCCB committees to affirm the gifts and contributions of African American Catholics and to provide more opportunities for African Americans to engage in the life of the Church.

Fundamentally, I view my role as a resource to African American Catholics working with and through diocesan staff and national organizations that serve the pastoral needs of African American Catholics. To that end, I serve as a catalyst, facilitator, advocate, listener and prayer partner for Catholics of African descent.
