  • A starting point for a five-year plan of action guiding American American Ministries,
  • A four day celebration of Catholic and African American faith, identity and culture,
  • A unique space, where Blacks who are Catholic and Catholics who are Black are, just
    once every five years, a majority voice,
  • A conference, with panels, exhibits, and cultural events to discover and share best
    practices in evangelization and social ministry
  • A spiritual uplift of glorious Eucharistic celebrations with dozens of concelebrants,
    superb music, inspirational dance and homilies,
  • Professional development for parish and diocesan staff in Black Catholic ministries,
