Black Catholic Ministry to host workshop on Oct. 21

Criterion staff report

The archdiocesan Black Catholic Ministry will host a workshop titled “What We Have Seen and Heard” at St. Andrew the Apostle Parish, 4052 E. 38th St., in Indianapolis, from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. on Oct. 21.

During the event, participants will identify and discuss the needs and concerns of the Black Catholic community, and cultivate the beginnings of an action plan that will enable the enculturation of Black Catholics in the everyday life of the Church.

The event will be led by Father Roy Lee of the Archdiocese of Atlanta. Father Lee is an adjunct professor for the Institute for Black Catholic Studies at Xavier University in New Orleans, DeVry University online and St. Leo University in Florida. He served as a chaplain for the United States Air Force, and has led revivals in the U.S. as well as in Japan and Korea. He has also been involved in ministry outreach to the homeless and to those in prison.

The event begins with Mass at 9 a.m. in St. Andrew Church. The workshop begins around 10 a.m. in the parish social hall.

There is no cost for the event, although freewill offerings will be accepted. Lunch is included in the event.

Registration is available online at goo.gl/hirfgd, or by contacting Pearlette Springer, archdiocesan Black Catholic Ministry coordinator, at pspringer@archindy.org, 317-236-1474 or 800-382-9836, ext. 1474. †
