The latest entry in our #BlackCatholicRoundup series, which amplifies Black Catholic news coming from other outlets. (Note: inclusion here does not necessarily indicate BCM's full endorsement of the story's material.)
- A reflection from a Traditionalist parish in D.C. on an Oxford Movement priest who ministered to Black Catholics in the area during the early- to mid-20th century. Though he did not desegregate his congregation, he augmented the practice of segregated seating by celebrating Mass separately for Black congregants in the church basement. He later became their pastor at a new parish in Fort Stanton, and they presumably helped donate his gravesite memorial marker.
