General Announcements 

Virtual Meeting with African Catholics in the archdiocese to be held on Nov. 21

The archdiocesan Black Catholic Ministry will sponsor a virtual meeting for African Catholics in the archdiocese via Zoom at 7 p.m. on Nov. 21.

All are invited to join in this meeting, the primary purpose of which is to hear from people in the archdiocese who identify as African Catholics—regardless of where they were born—regarding what they want and need from their parishes and pastoral leaders.

There are more than 25 African countries represented within the archdiocese’s African Catholic population. One of the goals of the Black Catholic Ministry is to work with the African Catholic community and the pastoral leaders in their parishes to assist in making parishes more welcoming to them. The objective is to motivate and engage both African Catholics and their parishes toward engaging each other, serving each other and addressing the needs of each other.

Registration is requested in advance at cutt.ly/AFRCatholics21.

For more information, contact Pearlette Springer at pspringer@archindy.org or 317-236-1474.
