Featured Article: Series On Worshipping During Holy Mass - Part 1 - What is the most important invitation that we can receive in our lives? This article is the first of a series on preparing for Holy Mass, participating in its celebration, and going forth to praise God in our communities. Our desire for the Eucharist moves us to make Christ-life choices in thought, speech, and action during the week. Consider that the most important invitation is offered to us each time that our Lord Jesus Christ invites us into sacramental Communion with Him. Read Full Story

There are hundreds of charitable causes that want a share of your generosity. And many of them are very worthy. Yet for many who will receive this newsletter, the cause of supporting and strengthening ministry to African American Catholics is of paramount importance.


We are proud to announce The Friends of the NBCC - women and men from throughout the United States that care deeply about the cause of this ministry and provide regular support each month.

History at the White House

The National Black Catholic Congress has held an important place in this nation's history dating back 120 years. "In 1889, Daniel Rudd called together the very first National Black Catholic Congress. This meeting was held at St. Augustine Catholic Church in Washington, D.C. Distinguished men of African descent came from all over the United States to participate in this historic event. President Grover

Brothers and sisters, We, though many, are one Body in Christ.
Romans 12:5

The Power of Coming Together

Still today, the National Black Catholic Congress is the primary convening organization and the primary disseminator of information supportive to Catholic African American ministry in the United States. To sustain and expand its mission today, the Congress must build a broader base of annual operating revenue. A goal for $150,000 has been set for the Friends inaugural campaign.


  • * Convene and connect those in Black Catholic Ministry throughout the US
  • * Develop new programming and deliver support using new technology
  • * Strengthen our advocacy for Black Catholic Ministry and those we serve


Data shows a significantly declining number of parishes and schools in the United States. Working together under the umbrella of the National Black Catholic Congress, we can research what is working best and examine how to share those great ideas as well as provide practical training to support implementation at the local level.

Most friends will give monthly from $5 to $100 per month as their blessings will allow. Some may give less and a few who are able to do so may give more. Only you can know how much the Lord has blessed you and how you are able to respond.

We will be very successful if all of us join together and do just the part we can do. Jesus teaches us directly, Listen to the Word of God and act on it. Will you act in faith right now? Please click here to Donate Now.
