For the second consecutive year, St. Ann in East Baltimore will host a special All Saints Day Mass Nov. 1 that will offer prayers for the canonization causes of six Black Americans.

Bishop John Ricard, superior general of the Baltimore-based Josephites and a former auxiliary bishop of Baltimore, will offer the 7 p.m. Mass. St. Ann is under the pastoral care of the Josephites as part of a pastorate that also includes St. Francis Xavier and St. Wenceslaus in East Baltimore.
